Moline police direct traffic around one of three vehicles involved in an accident on John Deere Road near 16th street in Moline Friday Nov 23, 2012.

Two people incurred apparently minor injuries in a three-vehicle crash shortly after 1 p.m. today on John Deere Road, near 16th Street.

Moline Police officers at the scene attributed the accident to drivers who were not paying attention during holiday traffic and rear-ended vehicles in front of them. Two people were taken to nearby Trinity West Hospital for treatment for what appeared to be minor injuries, police said.

Shortly after 1:20 p.m., a silver SUV was loaded onto a tow truck in the center of the median, and several feet away, a second black SUV sat with its front bumper crumpled in.Nearby officers directed traffic, which crawled along after the three-lane road where the accident occurred was temporarily reduced to one lane.
