GREENVILLE — Adverse driving conditions Wednesday evening led to a head-on collision that left one injured.

At approximately 6:18 p.m., emergency personnel from the Greenville City Fire Department and Greenville Township Rescue responded along with officers from the Greenville Police Department to the area of Sweitzer and Martz Streets in reference to a two-vehicle injury crash with entrapment.
