Three people were taken to hospital after a four-vehicle collision on Highway 3 in Essex.

Essex County OPP closed a section of the highway near Arner Town Line while the vehicles were removed. 

The crash involved a pickup truck, a dump truck and two sedans. The pickup sustained major rear damage.

An Essex firefighter was taken to Leamington hospital as precaution because he got hydraulic fluid in his eyes when using the Jaws of Life.
