Crews from Ocala Fire Rescue were called to a four-vehicle, chain-reaction crash late Thursday afternoon.
When firefighters arrived at the incident in the 2400 block of S.W. College Road, they found a vehicle in the roadway and three others in a nearby parking lot. Firefighters treated two occupants of the vehicle that was stopped in the roadway and they were transported to a local hospital.
The second vehicle, a gray Nissan Altima, had moderate front- and rear-end damage. One of the vehicle’s occupants complained of injuries but refused to be transported to a hospital, a report states.
The third vehicle, a white Dodge, also had front- and rear-end damage. The front-seat passenger suffered minor injuries in the crash, the report says.
The fourth vehicle, a gold Mercury Mountaineer SUV, suffered minor rear-end damage. The driver refused medical treatment and the vehicle’s other occupants weren’t injured.
The first vehicle was moved into the parking lot with the other three and the blocked roadway was reopened a short time later. There were no fluids leaking from any of the vehicles and no hazards on the road, the report says.
Officers from the Ocala Police Department also responded to the crash, as did paramedics from Marion County Fire Rescue.
