Four cars and four Elon students were involved in an accident that occurred at the intersection of Manning Avenue. and University Drive on Friday afternoon.
While five of the seven people involved in the accident were taken to the hospital, none of the injuries were believed to be significant
It doesn?t appear that any of the injuries were life threatening,? Capt. Sam Russell said.
Elon students involved in the accident included junior Drew Martin, who was uninjured in the incident. The other three involved are believed to be Elon softball players Paige Goss, Patti Weber and Melanie Heltherbran, according to friends at the scene. All three girls were taken to the Alamance Regional Medical Center by ambulance.
In our preliminary investigation it appears that a car pulled out from the stop sign in the path of the white SUV that set off the reaction, Russell said.
The airbags did deploy in the vehicles and seat belts were believed to be worn.

Elon, N.C. — Dr. Myles Brand, president of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, announced today the NCAA’s aspiration to increase student athletes’ Graduation Success Rate to 80 percent.
After transfer students were counted, 76 percent of Division 1 student athletes graduated last year, a 24-point increase from the 1990 total. And African Americans GSR rose 17 percent from 1990. Brand hopes that in six to seven years universities will achieve this new goal, but knows it won’t be easy.
