Seven people, including two children, were taken to area hospitals Tuesday afternoon after a wreck near Lake Tapps, according to East Pierce Fire & Rescue.
The crash happened about 4 p.m. at the intersection of West Tapps Drive East and Sumner-Tapps Highway East, adjacent to an East Pierce fire station, a news release stated.
A vehicle was slowing to turn at the intersection when another vehicle slammed into it and then hit a third vehicle, Battalion Chief Rick Goetz said in the release.
It took three of East Pierce Fire’s four medic units to transport the patients, who all had non-life-threatening injuries.
