Two people were taken to the hospital Friday after a three-vehicle crash on South Choctaw Drive near the intersection with Airway Drive.

The crash happened shortly before 4 p.m. when the driver of a vehicle heading west may have suffered a “medical condition” and hit a vehicle going east, said Sgt. Don Coppola Jr., a Baton Rouge Police Department spokesman. A third vehicle was then struck.

One person was taken to the hospital with critical injuries, and another with moderate injuries, said EMS spokesman Mike Chustz.

The investigation is ongoing, Coppola said.
