COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Traffic was delayed following a three-vehicle accident on Manchester Expressway on Wednesday afternoon. 

The three-vehicle accident involved two pick-up trucks and a sedan and happened on Manchester Expressway right past Peachtree Mall and the park-and-ride. 

Two of the drivers involved sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported by EMS units to the hospital  

“The truck struck the rear of the black car, causing it to move into the intersection,” said Sergeant Fred Carnes with the Columbus Police Motor Squad. “At that time the truck briefly went airborne went over on its side into the red truck that was waiting to make the left turn."

Sgt. Carnes also says that the driver of the blue pickup truck that caused the accident may be facing multiple charges, running a red light, improper lane change, and possibly more to come.
