LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A four car crash in Longview Monday afternoon just after 3 p.m. sent four people to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Longview accident investigators say that in the 5900 block of west Highway 80, a car had stopped to make a left hand turn. A second car had also stopped when a pickup truck rear-ended the last car, causing a chain-reaction.

Traffic was delayed as three lanes were closed, while police and emergency personnel cleared the accident scene.

Police say failure to control speed was the apparent cause of the accident.
