The Harrisonburg police are still investigating a car crash that resulted in three serious injuries and one non life-threatening injury at the intersection of Cantrell Avenue and Paul Street yesterday.
Around 12:30 p.m., officers responded to a two-vehicle crash. A woman driving a Chevrolet Trailblazer was driving north on Cantrell Avenue, trying to make a left onto Paul Street. As she was turning, she allegedly hit a Honda CRV, which was traveling in the opposite direction.
Two men and one woman were in the CRV.
Four people were taken to Rockingham Memorial Hospital. Three with serious injuries were taken by ambulance, and one with non-life threatening injuries went on their own.

The two men in the CRV were treated and released from RMH.
