The accident occurred around 7:50 a.m. Tuesday on U.S. Highway 275 west of Wisner. The Cuming County Sheriff’s Office says a rear-end collision occurred, followed by ricochet collision as drivers slowed for a semitrailer that was turning into a farm drive.

Another of the drivers, 19-year-old Alexander Ausdemore, of Wisner, also was taken to the hospital. The third driver involved, 28-year-old Chaundra Hasenkamp, of West Point, declined an ambulance trip but was taken by private vehicle to be checked for injuries.
The accident is being investigated.
