GREENVILLE – Motorists were left at a standstill early Friday morning as emergency crews worked to clear the wreckage of a two-vehicle crash. At approximately 5:33 a.m., emergency personnel from the Greenville City Fire Department and Greenville Township Rescue responded along with officers from the Greenville Police Department to the 5700 block of Jaysville-St. Johns Road in reference to a two-vehicle crash with possible injuries.

According to the Greenville Police Department, a preliminary investigation into the incident revealed a dark colored Chevrolet Silverado was traveling southbound on Jaysville-St. Johns Road when the driver of the vehicle failed to notice a Silver Mitsubishi Montero slowed for traffic. The Chevrolet collided with the rear of the Mitsubishi forcing the vehicle off the left side of the roadway.
