Four people were critically injured in a crash that happened early Tuesday morning in Greenville, Kentucky, according to the local fire department.

The fire department says that when crews arrived, they found a truck and a car off the road with heavy damage. Multiple injuries were caused by the crash, and the fire department says the people inside the vehicles had to be freed through extrication.

According to the fire department, three men and one woman were critically injured in the crash. While the fire department says the crash victims are currently in stable condition, some needed emergent transfers to trauma facilities.

Helicopters were called to air-lift the injured people from the scene but were unable to fly due to weather. In total, six ambulances and multiple other emergency vehicles were called to the crash.

South Main Street was shut down for nearly two hours but has since reopened.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
