Troopers say three people were injured in a three car crash in Duplin County Thursday evening.

The crash happened about 7 p.m. in front of Mill Branch Vineyards on Highway 41 between Chinquapin and Beulaville.

Troopers say a Ford Taurus failed to yield when it tried to make a left turn.  A Ford pickup truck hit the car, causing it to hit another pickup truck.

Three people, including two minors were taken to Vidant Duplin Hospital.

The crash forced troopers to close Highway 41 in both directions for a short time, but the road reopened by later Thursday night.
