Six people, including a 5-year-old boy, were injured in a two-vehicle crash on Lincoln Highway East (Route 30) Monday evening.
Emergency crews were called to the area of Hoffmeier Road, east of Route 41, at 6:30 p.m. for an accident with entrapment and ejection, according to dispatch reports.
All six people in the cars were transported to Lancaster General Hospital after the collision involving a Kia sport utility vehicle and a Ford Focus.
A 37-year-old man and 23-year-old woman, both of Lancaster, were in one of the vehicles, state police Trooper Stephanie Trzaska said in a press release. They were traveling west on Route 30 when they crossed into the eastbound lane, striking the other vehicle.
Occupants of the other vehicle included a 30-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman from Florida, and a 33-year-old woman and 5-year-old boy, both of Ephrata. Names were not released because families were still being notified.
Gap fire Chief Troy Wenger said one person appeared to have "real serious" injuries while another also was badly hurt. The child was not among the most seriously injured, he added.
More than a mile of Route 30, from White Horse Road (Route 897) to Simmontown Road, was shut down for hours after the accident as a crash-reconstruction team worked at the scene.
