Police are investigating a serious three car accident in Sylvester.

The pile-up happened just before 10 p.m. Friday night near Snipes Piggly Wiggly on U.S. Highway 82.

Authorities initially told us one person died. A short time later they said they're not sure that's true, but they know there are serious injuries.

As of just before 11 p.m., traffic was still blocked on highway 82.

Police detoured drivers through a nearby parking lot as investigators sorted through the wreckage.

 We'll have more information on this wreck as soon as it's available.
