Columbia firefighters begin cleanup of a five-car pile up crash on southbound Providence Road on Friday evening. The crash closed both lanes of traffic for a short period before cars were able to pass on the shoulder.

COLUMBIA – Two people were taken to the hospital and a third was treated on the scene with minor injuries after a five-car pileup on Providence Road.

The collision occurred just south of Mick Deaver Drive on Providence Road, and bottlenecked northbound traffic to the shoulder as firefighters and ambulance crews assisted the motorists involved, Columbia Fire Department Capt. Eric Hartman said.
