Three people were involved in a three auto accident Friday afternoon on Broad Street in front of DeKalb Community Bank.

Captain Steven Leffew of the Smithville Police Department told WJLE that 35 year old Eureatha Cripps of Smithville was traveling west on Broad Street in a 2004 Nissan Altima when her car struck the rear of a westbound 2013 Nissan Frontier pickup, driven by 61 year old Kenneth Knowles of Smithville who was attempting to turn right into the parking lot of DeKalb Community Bank.

The impact of the crash forced the Knowles truck into a 1993 Dodge Caravan, driven by 29 year old Jerry Madison of Smithville, who was waiting for traffic to clear so he could pull onto the highway from the parking lot of the bank.

According to Captain Leffew, there were no serious injuries and no one was transported by ambulance to the hospital.

Members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene to assist
