Rescue units were called to an area just north of 70th Street on Ohio St. north of Augusta to help extricate people trapped in a car that was involved in an accident at about 6:15 Tuesday morning.
At 6:14 a.m. the Butler County Sheriff's Office received a call of a three-vehicle accident in the 6500 block of SW Ohio.
The sheriff's office, along with the Kansas Highway Patrol, Fire and Augusta EMS responded.
Upon arrival, officers found a blue Suzuki in the east ditch with rear end damage, as well as a white Lincoln and silver Buick LeSabre, both with front end damage.
According to the report, the Buick, driven by Robert Hoffmann, 52, of El Dorado, was stopped in the southbound lane waiting on a large group of deer to cross the street.
The northbound Suzuki, driven by Adam Quiring, 35, of Douglass, also was slowing for the deer when the northbound Lincoln, driven by Raymond Bloomquist, 78, of Augusta, did not notice the car in front of him slowing and collided with the Suzuki. The Suzuki was pushed into the east ditch, then the Lincoln collided with the Buick.
Quiring, Bloomquist and Dusky Herring, 36, of Douglass, the passenger in the Suzuki, all were taken to Wichita hospitals complaining of neck and back pain. Hoffmann did not have any injuries.
