Three people were taken to the hospital following a crash in Rowan County Tuesday night. 

The two-vehicle wreck happened around 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Bostian Road and Daugherty Road, located near Landis and China Grove. Officials said the driver of one vehicle reportedly ran a stop sign and then collided with another vehicle. 

Both vehicles then clipped a utility pole, bringing down power lines in the area, officials said.
