EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Crews were sent to a crash that occurred on Veterans Memorial Parkway on Thursday afternoon.

The wreck happened near the intersection of Riverside Drive.

Our crew on scene says traffic was backed up in both directions on the parkway.

They say a woman, who was a passenger in one of the cars involved in the crash, was stretchered into an ambulance, while the man driving the car was seen limping. Both were taken away in an ambulance.

The other vehicle involved was an SUV with the airbags deployed. Our crew says the driver of that vehicle seems to be fine.

The Evansville Police Department had two officers on traffic control, and a reconstructionist was working the scene.

Eastbound traffic was briefly diverted onto Riverside Drive.

We will update this story once more information is available.
