Wood County, W.Va. (WTAP) - A two-car crash on Emerson Avenue on Wednesday morning brought traffic to a standstill in both directions.

A Chevrolet Equinox was driving southbound on Emerson Avenue when the car struck a GMC Sierra truck from behind. Officers on the scene were forced to shut down both lanes of the road to make way for emergency vehicles and tow trucks.

Officials at the scene, including from the Wood County Sheriff’s Office and Waverly Volunteer Fire Department, were forced to direct traffic through one available lane.

One female driver was transported to Marietta Memorial Hospital with an undisclosed injury, but she has since been released from the hospital.
