Three people, including an infant, were hospitalized after a three-vehicle wreck Wednesday in the Chapel Hill area.

The driver of a white Toyota Camry, traveling west on State Highway 64, stopped to make a left turn onto Wolfe Lane when a green Chevrolet SUV, also westbound, struck it from behind, according to a preliminary report from the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The impact then caused the Toyota to travel into the oncoming lane, where a gasoline tanker, traveling east, struck the vehicle, DPS said.

The tanker swerved through a line of trees and stopped in a grassy field, spilling gasoline.

The driver of the tanker, the driver of the white Toyota and her infant passenger were taken to an area hospital.

No fatalities have been reported.

Traffic was diverted off of both Highway 64 and Wolfe Lane most of Wednesday, as hazmat cleanup had to take place due to the tanker’s gas spill.

Motorists were asked to use caution in the area.
