KOERTH - A wreck at the intersection of U.S. Highway 77 and Farm-to-Market Road 531 Friday afternoon sent three people to area hospitals.

Around 4:15 p.m., a Dodge Intrepid was traveling south on U.S. 77 while a truck was traveling on FM Road 531. The two collided at the intersection, said B.J. Chomout, a Yoakum firefighter.
