Three drivers and five passengers were taken to local hospitals after a four-car accident at the intersection of Rockaway Freeway and Beach 73 Street late Monday morning.

The bang-up happened when the driver of a Dodge minivan, traveling west on the freeway, swerved into oncoming traffic to avoid a Chevrolet turning into the westbound lanes. The minivan, loaded with five Brooklyn family members, struck the Chevy and then crossed the divider. The minivan then struck a Cadillac and pushed it into an Infinity. It was unclear who was at fault.
