Multiple people were sent to the hospital this morning after a rollover accident at the intersection of Shaws Flat Road and Highway 49 in Columbia.

Emergency officials responded at approximately 10:52 a.m. to the multiple vehicle accident, and traffic at the busy intersection was still backed up as of 11:20 a.m. At the scene, a white car that appeared to be hatchback or wagon was upside down in a ditch and a sport-utility vehicle on the road was damaged in the frontend from an impact.
