Five-car crash

A five-car collision Saturday night involving a limousine carrying 10 passengers sent multiple people to the hospital, and Metro Police said alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

The crash occurred at 10:23 p.m. Saturday on Rainbow Boulevard just south of Twain Avenue. According to Metro, the crash started when a man driving a 1999 Dodge Ram truck sideswiped the rear of another vehicle traveling north on Rainbow Boulevard.

The truck then continued traveling forward, hitting the rear of a 2003 Land Rover before continuing over the raised median into the southbound lanes of Rainbow Boulevard. The Ram hit the front of an oncoming limousine carrying 10 passengers, flipped over onto the driver's side and continued traveling forward until a 2005 Honda Accord struck the underside of the truck.

At some point during the crash, the driver of the Ram was ejected from the truck and came to rest under it. He was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition. Several other people involved in the crash were taken to the hospital with a variety of injuries ranging from minor to moderate.

The collision remains under investigation by Metro's Accident Investigation Section.
