Three people were reported injured, one of them seriously, in a three-vehicle crash Monday afternoon in the westbound lane of Clark's River Road at its intersection with Wayne Sullivan Drive.

Stephen T. Utz, 59, of Paducah, was at a red light at 12:57 p.m. in a 2016 Dodge Charger behind a 2005 Ford Explorer driven by Johnny R. Baker, 70, of Paducah. Rodger Watson, 47, of Hickory told police he looked at his 2015 Dodge Ram truck's radio and did not realize the light was red. His truck hit the rear of Utz's car, forcing it into the rear of Baker's Explorer.

Baker complained of neck pain and Utz sustained more serious injuries, police said. Both were taken by Mercy Ambulance to Baptist Health Paducah. Watson reportedly sought medical treatment on his own.
