A three-vehicle collision on Interstate 26 sent two drivers to the hospital and shut down one lane of the interstate on Thursday morning.

It happened around 10 a.m. on I-26 eastbound, near Exit 44.

Highway Patrol said a utility truck unsafely merged and collided with a semi-truck, which then hit another semi.

A patrolman said two drivers were taken to Park Ridge Hospital with minor injuries.

Troopers said diesel spilled onto the interstate, so drivers should expect a lane closure to continue while crews clean up.

News 13 has a crew on scene and will update as details become available.
