A major street in Greenville, closed because of a traffic accident, has reopened.
All four lanes of Greenville Boulevard were closed for several hours Tuesday morning, just past Hastings Ford. Traffic on the other end was backed up to the bridge over the Tar River.
The accident involved a pickup truck and a passenger car. Rescue crews had to cut off the top of the car to free the driver inside.
Firefighters say the two people inside the pickup truck were also taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. We do not know the extent of injuries, nor any details about what caused the accident.
The wreck happened just north of Sun Chase Apartments.
