Sgt. Amy Pelletier said the crash occurred at 6:02 p.m. in the local lanes of northbound 53 at Interstate 90.

One vehicle, she said, was stopped in traffic when another car struck from behind. A third vehicle then struck the second one from the rear.

The first driver, who'd stopped to check the vehicle for problems even before the crash, was pinned against a guardrail when a fourth vehicle joined the pileup.

Pelletier said none of those taken to the hospital exhibited life-threatening injuries.
