City Times Staff
One person was taken to the hospital following a four-vehicle crash Thursday on Church Street.
The crash occurred about 5:45 PM near the Rice St. intersection, where a line of vehicles had developed in the northbound lane as a driver was waiting to turn left, when another motorist rear-ended a vehicle at the back of the line.
A City Times reporter on the scene observed airbags had deployed inside most of the vehicles involved.
Stevens Point police, Portage Co. Ambulance and Stevens Point firefighters were on the scene for more than two hours. Northbound traffic was rerouted to Michigan Ave. via Rice Street.
One motorist was transported to Ministry St. Michael’s with non-life threatening injuries, while another motorist was cited for inattentive driving.
