A two-vehicle accident Friday afternoon on US-24 Highway sent one person to the hospital and halted traffic in both directions for a time while the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department was busy investigating the crash.

The accident happened about 3:40 when a vehicle traveling west began to turn left, prompting the driver of the vehicle behind it to slow down. But there was a vehicle trailing the second vehicle and the driver of it was unable to stop in time and ran into the back of the second vehicle.

The collision injured one person, who was transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. The mishap took place about four miles east of the junction with US-59 Highway.
