VERNON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ A massive accident on I-84 West in Vernon that shutdown that side of the highway for most of Sunday evening sent 14 people to the hospital, three reportedly in critical condition.

The crash, which happened just before 6 p.m., involved an extended passenger van, a car and a pickup truck. Thirteen of the injured were inside the van.

A witness said it looked like two of the vehicles were racing before causing the crash that sent the van down the embankment.

The highway is re-opened for the morning commute.
