One vehicle was still on the highway while the other car after impact went down into a ditch about 100 feet away from the site of the crash.

Crews removed the driver’s side doors and the roofs off of both the vehicles to get the passengers out. It took nearly 30 minutes to free everyone from the wreckage. EMS crews transported 2 pri-2 and 1 pri-1 patients to PRMC in Salisbury for treatment. Rt.50 westbound was shut down for nearly 2 hours.
