Three people have been taken to the hospital after a one vehicle crash occurred Wednesday afternoon on US 69 just South of Jacksonville.

A preliminary investigation has indicated that the driver of an SUV was heading north on US 69, ran off the road to the right and hit several trees.

The driver was airlifted to a hospital in Tyler and the two passengers were transported to a Jacksonville hospital. The roadway was closed to make way for the helicopter, but has opened back up.

Police are still investigating the crash.
