Four people were critically injured in a crash that happened early Tuesday morning in Greenville, Kentucky, according to the local fire department.
The Greenville Fire Department says it received a call about a two-vehicle crash just before 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. The fire department says the crash happened on South Main Street near the intersection at Payton Drive.
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.
