Two people sustained injuries in a two-car crash that snarled traffic on Asheville Highway Tuesday afternoon not far from the Marshall Lane intersection.

A report by Greeneville police officer Josh Pierce indicates that the accident occurred in the southbound lanes at 4:10 p.m.

A 1997 Ford Mustang driven by Earl Wines Jr., 23, of Chickory Lane, Greeneville, rear-ended a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass driven by Brenda Fillers, 61, of Davy Crockett Drive, Greeneville, the report said.

Fillers and passenger Wayne Fillers, 64, also of Davy Crockett Drive, were transported by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to Laughlin Memorial Hospital for treatment.

A spokesperson for the hospital said this morning that both patients were treated and released.

In addition to Greeneville police and EMS, the Greeneville Fire Department and the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad were at the scene.

The accident occurred as the sun was setting, the report said.

According to the report, Wines stated that the glare was so bright he was unable to distinguish brake lights on the Fillers vehicle and was not able to bring his vehicle to a stop or avoid colliding with the Fillers car.

Neither Wines nor a passenger in his vehicle, Alisha Prater, 18, of Chickory Lane, was injured.

Wines was cited for an insurance violation.

It was noted in the report that Wines' "following improperly" was a contributing factor to the crash.

All parties were wearing safety belts.

Both vehicles sustained disabling damage and were towed.

Traffic was tied up on Asheville Highway for nearly an hour while accident response, cleanup, and investigation were under way.

Normal traffic flow resumed shortly after 5 p.m.
