TUCSON - A three-car accident involving a sheriff's deputy has left La Canada closed in both directions near Orange Grove until at least 6 p.m.
Pima County Sheriff's Office officials say that at about 3:30 p.m. Today, three cars stopped at the stop light at La Canada, waiting to turn left onto Panorama; the deputy's car was the second in the line.
A fourth vehicle hit the backend of the last car in the line, pushing it into the deputy's car, which then pushed into the first car, like dominos, PCSO says.
Officials say that there are no life-threatening injuries, but three people, including the deputy, had to be extricated from their vehicles. Two people were taken to a nearby hospital for their injuries.
PCSO says that the car that caused the accident was going the speed limit - 45 mph.
