Five people were transported to Southern Ohio Medical Center Saturday after an accident occurred in front of a yard sale on Dogwood Ridge Road in Wheelersburg.

A car was heading west on Dogwood Ridge Road, near Best Care Nursing and Rehab Center, when it was struck from behind. The secondary vehicle pushed the first vehicle, who was attempting to turn into the yard sale, into a crowd of people.

Three pedestrians and two passengers were transported to SOMC with non life-threatening injuries. The names of the individuals involved in the crash have not been released. The investigation is ongoing.

Preliminary information was obtained from the highway patrol post in Lucasville.
