Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers say two drivers were cited for their involvement in a three vehicle accident on I-580 south on Thursday morning.

Troopers say the accident happened just before 8 a.m. on I-580 southbound near the Glendale southbound on ramp. When troopers arrived on scene, they say three vehicles had crashed blocking the far left lane.

They say a preliminary investigation shows the driver of a BMW was slowing down due to congested traffic in front of her when she was hit in the left rear by a Ford SUV. At the same time, a Chevy work van hit the right rear of the Ford forcing it into the center concrete wall.

All three vehicles were stopped, blocking the travel lane.

The Ford's driver and passenger – and the driver of the Chevy van were transported to Renown Regional Medical Center with unknown injuries.

The driver of the BMW was not hurt.

Troopers say the drivers of the Ford and Chevy were cited for following too close involving an accident.

The lanes were blocked for about 90 minutes as troopers investigated the accident.
