LEADING THE RCNS HEADLINES:
Emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene of the crash after 911 callers reported a passenger sedan and pickup truck had plowed into each other, causing one of the two vehicles to overturn. Callers reported the two wrecked vehicles were in the middle of the roadway and that other motorists were trying to work their way past the heavily-damaged vehicles.
