Both drivers suffered injuries in a two-vehicle crash about 3:55 p.m. Wednesday on West Andrew Johnson Highway at the intersection with North Mohawk Road, said James Foshie, Town of Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department assistant chief.
One of the drivers, a 51-year-old female, was driving a Ford Explorer that came to rest on its roof in a culvert.
Town of Mosheim firefighters and Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad members helped free the woman from the SUV, Foshie said.
She was taken by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services to a local hospital. The woman did not appear to have life-threatening injuries, Foshie said.
Another woman, driving a Dodge Caravan involved in the collision, was taken by private vehicle to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, he said.
The Caravan was attempting to cross the northbound lanes of West Andrew Johnson Highway and continue on North Mohawk Road when it was struck by the SUV, Foshie said.
The wreck closed one lane of the busy roadway for more than an hour, he said.
The names of the accident victims were not available this morning.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
