First responders work to remove the driver of a Ford Focus after a crash Thursday afternoon at the intersection of Main Street and Owens Street.

Two people received minor injuries during a two-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon, at approximately 2:50 p.m.

Officer Travis Vickrey of the Atmore Police Department said a Chevy Silverado was driving south on Main Street when it collided with a Ford Focus at the intersection of Main Street and Owens Street. The Focus was traveling east on Owens Street and attempting to cross the intersection when the collision occurred.

Both occupants of the Focus both sustained head injuries, Vickrey said. The passenger and driver, whose names were not immediately available, were transported by ambulance to the Atmore Community Hospital.

First responders had to use equipment to extricate the driver from the vehicle, but Vickrey said she was conscious.

There were four people in the Silverado, but none were injured and the vehicle was drivable after the crash, Vickrey said.
