A three-vehicle wreck Monday afternoon on North Dixie Avenue in Elizabethtown sent one man to Hardin Memorial Hospital with possible life-threatening injuries.

At 2:26 p.m., Elizabethtown Police Department received a call regarding a wreck near the 1100 block of Dixie near Peddlers Mall.

A woman driving a white Acura was traveling northbound on Dixie  Avenue when she failed to stop, said Virgil Willoughby, EPD public information officer.

Her car simultaneously struck the two motorcycles which were stopped at a red light, Willoughby said.

Don Howard, Hardin County EMS supervisor, said one man was sent to the hospital with “possible life-threatening injuries.”

Traffic was backed up in the northbound lanes of Dixie Avenue while officers responded.

As of Monday afternoon, Willoughby said an EPD officer was still investigating. The names of those involved were not available.
