A silver Chevrolet Cavalier headed westbound on I-70 Drive turned left into the path of an eastbound gray Toyota Camry that failed to stop in time, Columbia Police Officer Wendy Stokes said.

The third car, a black Subaru Forester, was behind the Cavalier and unable to avoid the accident, Stokes said. The Forester sustained the least amount of damage.

All three drivers reported wearing seat belts.

The drivers of the Camry and the Cavalier were transported to hospitals to be treated for minor injuries, Stokes said, and the driver of the Forester did not sustain any injuries. There were no additional passengers in any of the cars, she said.

All three cars sustained heavy damage and had to be towed from the scene, she said.

One ticket was issued to the driver of the Camry for the initial collision, Stokes said.
