The crash resulted in nine people being injured including one with life threatening injuries. One of the people injured had to be extricated from their car.

The preliminary investigation shows that a 2001 GMC Jimmy was driving west and slowing down to turn left into a driveway. A 2015 GMC Sierra driving behind the Jimmy was slowing down to go around the Jimmy. A semi also traveling in the same direction rear-ended the Sierra which pushed the Jimmy into oncoming traffic where it hit a 2014 Toyota Sienna.
Highway 23 was closed for over 90 minutes.
