Three women were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries after a single-vehicle rollover crash on Melton Lake Drive on Sunday evening, authorities said.
The crash of the minivan was reported at about 6:35 p.m. Sunday at Rolling Links Boulevard in east Oak Ridge.
The vehicle was going south on Melton Lake Drive when it left the right side of the road, hit a boulder, continued traveling south, and landed on its left side, said Oak Ridge Police Department Lieutenant Matt Tedford.
After the crash, the three women were trapped inside the van, and they had to be helped out, Tedford said. Emergency crews cut off the top of the van.
The women were taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville by Anderson County Emergency Medical Services, Tedford said.
The crash was being investigated Sunday evening by ORPD Officer Kenny Prickett.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
