HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A three-car crash that started on West Broad Street and ended at the neighboring McDonald's restaurant has placed three drivers in the hospital.

At about 12:45 today, a Mercedes was traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on West Broad Street at Libbie Place, according to authorities.  It veered into the westbound lanes, hit a car and then hopped the curb and hit a second car that was in the drive-thru at the McDonald's.

According to eye-witnesses, the woman in the drive-thru had to be cut out of her car and was transported to VCU Medical Center.

The driver of the Mercedes and another driver were sent to nearby St. Mary's Hospital.
