Traffic was slowed to a crawl on the Bayview Bridge as the result of a three vehicle crash on the bridge at 3:10 p.m. Friday.

The Highway Patrol reports the chain reaction crash occurred as traffic slowed in the eastbound lane of the bridge, as 22 year old Quinton Ewing of Quincy struck a car driven by 36 year old Joshua Chaplin of Quincy, who in turn struck a pickup driven by 60 year old Kevin Hughs of Quincy.

Hughs and Chaplin were taken to Blessing Hospital for treatment.

The crash created about a two hour traffic jam as traffic was reduced to one lane on the bridge.
