Two taken to hospital following crash

Two were injured, but no one was killed.

Icy road conditions contributed to a wreck on Egan Drive near Channel Drive just before 8 a.m. on Thursday morning, closing lanes and delaying morning drivers.

The drivers of both vehicles were transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital for injuries, said Lt. Krag Campbell in an interview.

A 23-year-old woman driving a Honda CRV and a 52-year-old woman driving a Toyota Yaris were involved in the crash. The 52-year-old woman was cited for causing the crash, Campbell said. Both vehicles were towed from the scene and likely totaled, Campbell said.

Both directions of Egan Drive were briefly closed, Campbell said. The northbound route was fully reopened shortly thereafter, while the southbound route was opened halfway, before being reopened fully. The road was completely cleared within three hours. All on-duty patrol officers were pulled in to manage the accident scene and traffic, Campbell said.
