WARREN - A three-car accident at the intersection of Elm Road and Hollywood Street sent two people to the hospital with minor injuries about 3:20 p.m. Thursday, according to police.
Susan Klinger said her daughter, Shanon Travis, 37, of Warren, had borrowed her van to run errands when the van she and her two children were in was hit by two trucks on the driver's side.
"She called me screaming, said she was just around the corner," Kingler said.
Klinger said her daughter probably suffered back and neck injuries and was taken to Trumbull Memorial Hospital. The two children, ages 5 and 7, were shaken up but uninjured, she said.
"She was sitting there stopped, and the red truck hit the turquoise truck, and they both hit her," Klinger said.
According to the police report, Travis was stopped at the sign on Hollywood Street waiting to turn right when a red truck driven south on Elm Road by Andrew Moses, 73, of Warren, failed to yield while making a left turn onto Hollywood Street.

Three cars were involved in a crash at Elm Road and Hollywood Street in Warren on Thursday afternoon.
Moses' truck then struck that of James Heilman, who was driving north on Elm Road, and the two trucks together struck Klinger's van, the report states.
"He knocked me around. My front end was over this way," said Moses, indicating that his truck was facing north when he had been driving south.
Heilman was taken to a local hospital with what police said are minor injuries. Moses said his wrist was injured but stayed at the scene of the accident until it was cleared.
He said he has seen people speeding down Elm Road in the past and takes it into consideration while driving on the road.
"I think I'm going to give up driving anymore," Moses said. "I'm going to move down to Florida."
The accident didn't startle Teresa Pettis, who lives in a home on the corner where the accident took place.
"I look four or five time before I pull out. It's oncoming traffic both ways," she said.
In the seven or so years she has been living on the corner, she said she hears trucks hitting potholes and the curb almost constantly.
"I heard a loud noise and that's what I thought it was," she said of the Thursday accident.
With high-schoolers and children walking up and down the street, she said she is always nervous that they will be injured.
"People don't stop," she said.
