      Volunteers with the Rivers Alive cleanup event ended their day Saturday with a trip to the emergency room.

      The volunteer van had broken down and pulled over to the side of Highway 118 and a Leesburg Police Tahoe pulled over to help. Shortly after, a tractor trailer came around the corner, hit the Tahoe, and side swiped the van.

      Twelve volunteers were sent to the hospital but were released the same day.
