WARSAW, Ind. (WFFT)- A five vehicle crash sent four people to the hospital Thursday. 

Police were called just after 2:00 p.m to the area of U.S. 30 and CR 150 W. when Timothy Fournier, 19, failed to stop, causing a chain reaction crash. 

State Police said his Tahoe collided with the rear of a Cadillac driven by David Penn, 70. Penn was stopped in the passing lane. He was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Two female passengers in the Cadillac suffered serious injuries. One was air lifted to the hospital, and the other was transported by ambulance. 

The Cadillac then collided with the back of a Buick driven by Willie Peacock, 80. He was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. The reaction continued when Peacock hit a Dodge driven by Brandon Shumaker, 28. Shumaker was not injured. 

After the Tahoe collided with the Cadillac, it swerved to the left and collided with the rear of a Ford in the left turn lane of eastbound U.S. 30. The driver of the Ford, Bradley Bibler, 58, was uninjured. 

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor in the crash.
