Witnesses told Paris Police Department officers that a 1998 red Tacoma driven by a man identified as Dennis Johnson was going south on Collegiate and failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection with the loop.
Police were told that as Johnson’s vehicle went into the intersection, it was first hit by a west-bound 2009 Toyota driven by Alton Sims, 69, of Paris, and then by an east-bound 2012 Dodge pickup pulling a utility trailer driven by Jeffery Gilbert, 35, of Paris.
Johnson was taken by helicopter to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
Sims; his wife, Sherry; and Gilbert were taken by Paris EMS to a local hospital for treatment.
The investigation into the accident is continuing, police said.

One person was arrested on a parole warrant and one person was detained for mental evaluation.
