At least one person remains hospitalized following a two-vehicle crash Wednesday morning near downtown Greeneville, a Johnson City Medical Center spokeswoman confirmed.
Michael Montgomery, 1115 Forest St., is still a patient at the Johnson City Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said at 9 a.m. today.

Grimm was not a patient at the medical center this morning, a hospital spokeswoman said. Information on Montgomery's condition was not available as of press time.

Montgomery was traveling on West Summer heading toward Blue Springs Parkway and Mosheim, Sayne said.
Both victims were trapped in their vehicles, he said.
