Three people in the hospital after an accident on Hilltop

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - An early morning accident in Jonesboro sent three to the hospital.

Around 10 o'clock Monday morning, a red Mustang was headed eastbound on Johnson Ave. A white Saturn attempted to make a left turn from Bill's Fresh Market onto Johnson when it turned into the path of the Mustang.

Sgt. George Martin of the Jonesboro Police Department said all motorists need to take their time and be aware.

"When you're turning from a private property or parking lot or something like that, make sure you look both ways," said Martin.  "Make sure you have a safe interval to get out into the traffic."

Two people in the Saturn and one in the Mustang were taken to the hospital with injuries.
