Sponsored by:

Highway 120 near the Yosemite Park entrance was closed for a time Tuesday morning after a slow-speed, four-vehicle pileup caused by black ice.

The Califorinia Highway Patrol says three passengers in the first two cars to collide were taken to Tuolumne General Hospital with minor injuries, and the driver of one car, Phillip Casillas of Phillips Ranch, was flown to Doctors Medical Center in Modesto with chest pains.

The accident happened just before 11 a.m. and closed the roadway for a few hours.
