A two-car collision Sunday at the intersection of Elm Road and Highway 32 sent three people to the hospital and the vehicles barreling into a parked car and fire hydrant.
According to an Oak Creek police report:
A 78-year-old Oak Creek man said he didn't see anyone coming when he tried to cross Highway 32 about noon Sunday. However, a driver northbound on Highway 32 was entering the intersection about the same time and couldn't stop, striking the car in the rear passenger side.
The 78-year-old's car spun around and hit a fire hydrant. The other vehicle continued forward and hit a car parked in the Subway parking lot.
The 78-year-old was taken to St. Luke's South Shore for back pain. Police cited him for failure to yield right-of-way.
The driver and a passenger in the other vehicle were taken to Wheaton Franciscan for minor injuries from the airbag deployment.
Both vehicles involved in the collision and the parked car at Subway sustained severe damage and were towed from the scene.
