Five people were hospitalized Thursday after a two-vehicle crash in Upper Leacock Township.

Two people were trapped inside a vehicle for 40 minutes, but no one was seriously injured.

The vehicles collided around 11:45 a.m. at Creek Hill and Hellers Church roads, with one vehicle coming to rest on its side on top of the other one.

Five ambulances and four advanced life support units were called to the scene.

Firefighters said a front windshield and a car roof had to be removed to reach two people who were freed at 12:25 p.m.

Three people in one vehicle and two people in the other were taken to the hospital for treatment of minor to moderate injuries, according to East Lampeter Township police Lt. Robin Weaver.

Weaver said the collision happened after the vehicle traveling south on Hellers Church Road didn’t stop and collided with the vehicle that was lawfully driving westbound on Creek Hill Road.

The driver of the vehicle that caused the accident was from out of state, as were the passengers in the vehicle, Weaver said.

The intersection was closed until 1:30 p.m.
