Two-car accident in Merrill sends five to hospital

Posted:

MERRILL (WAOW) -- Five people went to the hospital after a two-car crash in Merrill.

Merrill fire officials say the accident happened at 12:33 p.m. at the intersection of Scott Street and E. 7th Street in Merrill. Officials say two vehicles were significantly damaged—one in the middle of the intersection, and the other up on the boulevard.

Police closed the intersection while rescue workers treated the patients. Five people were transported to the hospital.

"The individuals were wearing seat belts, which may have helped in reducing the seriousness of the injuries," said Merrill Fire Department Assistant Chief Steve Hintze.

Rescue workers worked the scene for about an hour.
