Initial investigation shows that one vehicle was traveling East on Salmon Street and collided with a vehicle traveling South on Union Street. The vehicle that rolled over struck a parked vehicle on Salmon Street that also was pushed into a fourth vehicle.
Three vehicles were towed from the scene and the streets in the area were closed for about one hour.
