BRIGHTON (CBS) — Two people were taken to the hospital after a car flew off an overpass in Brighton and landed onto oncoming cars on Soldiers Field Road Saturday afternoon.
Police say a 33-year-old Watertown man was speeding on Birmingham Parkway and failed to negotiate the turn at the McHugh Overpass. He drove through the fencing and guardrail and crashed into a pickup truck that was traveling west bound on Soldiers Field Road.
The dislodged fencing and guardrail landed on another vehicle that was headed east bound on Soldiers Field Road.
The pickup truck driver and the driver that crashed through the guardrail were taken to the hospital.
The crash shut down the west bound side of Soldiers Field Road in Brighton for about an hour.
Police say no charges have been filed.
