The wreck was severe enough to necessitate the closing of Greenbrier Street for approximately 45 minutes afterward, and though both persons involved were taken to a nearby hospital, they each had only minor injuries. According to news reports, the accident was caused by the presence of a large truck that obstructed the first driver’s vision, which resulted in her pulling out in front of the second car and causing the accident.
