Highway 273 was closed for a while Wednesday at the intersection with Ox Yoke Road after a collision involving five different vehicles. There were four patients, at least one of whom suffered major injuries and had to be extricated with Jaws of Life. The crash happened at around 9:40AM. There were initially reports of shots fired but that was apparently unfounded. Southbound traffic was being diverted at Spring Gulch Road while the wreckage was cleared and the crash was investigated.
