Families embraced at the corner of Webb Road and Highway 30 following the collision, around 4:30 Friday.
Police were still sorting on the scene, but a witness told NTV a silver car in the west ditch had been speeding, and forced another car into a pickup.
The truck was smoking when our crew arrived.
Two kids and their mom, who appeared to be pregnant, went to the hospital with minor injuries.
Firefighters said they got a scare at an accident earlier Friday in Grand Island, when a car struck a display of propane tanks outside Walgreens on Second Street.
Fortunately, firefighters said it did not cause an explosion or fire.
