(Times Bulletin/Ed Gebert)
Traffic on State Route 118 S early Monday evening was blocked due to two separate crashes. First, a Nissan Pathfinder with a Texas license plate failed to negotiate a curve and drove into the ditch before ending up in Town Creek just south of Hoghe Rd. A witness to the crash stopped to check on the driver in the creek. The witness's Pontiac was rear-ended by a green Chevy truck traveling north on State Route 118. At least one person was reported injured. No other details are available at this time.
