Three children are taken to the hospital after a rollover accident near Somerset today.

The Lancaster Post of the State Highway Patrol said it happened around noon on State Route 757 near the intersection of State Route 13.  Trooper Andy Ward said a Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling southbound on State Route 757.  He said a witness told him the vehicle veered off the roadway and rolled into a ditch.

Trooper Ward said the driver stated that she swerved to miss a dog in the road.  Three children were transported to Fairfield Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.

The driver and all three children were wearing seat belts.  The name of the driver is not being released at this time, but Trooper Ward said she will likely be cited with failure to control.
