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.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
