SOUTHINGTON — An 84-year-old driver was cited after a five-car crash on Main Street on Friday afternoon.

Beverly Granniss, of Southing­ton, was cited for failure to drive a reasonable distance apart and failure to drive in proper lane, Lt. Stephen Elliott said Tuesday.

The crash occurred about 4:40 p.m. near Berlin Avenue. A compact car driven by Granniss was going north on Main Street when it struck the rear of a car stopped in the line of traffic. Granniss’ car continued off the road and onto the sidewalk near 121 Main St., where it struck some shrubs before continuing across the intersection of Berlin Avenue and back on the sidewalk in front of 75 Main St, Elliott said.

Granniss then drove back on the road, and her car struck the rear of a second car that was stopped in a line of traffic, Elliott said. The vehicle was pushed into a third car stopped in front of it, which was pushed into a fourth vehicle.

Five people were taken to area hospitals with injuries that were not life-threatening. Three vehicles were towed from the scene.
