The call was for 3 car accident at a location where there have been previous fatalities.  The dispatch said it was a t-bone style impact so there was a potential of serious injury.  The first fire unit on scene advised that there were 2 patients with minor injuries which was good to hear.  It appeared that a silver car that got t-boned cut across 2 lanes of travel and a vehicle coming towards it attempt to stop before hitting it in the side.  The 3rd vehicle was hit by the vehicle crossing the lanes of travel and had been stationary.
