LOST CREEK -- Seven people, including five juveniles, are recovering from a two-car, head-on collision Friday morning near South Harrison High School.
All patients, whose names have not yet been released, suffered minor injuries, United Hospital Center President Bruce Carter said.
Some victims have been treated and released. Further patient condition information wasn't available.
The accident happened at about 7 a.m. on county Route 270 about a mile east of the school at a place commonly called Yeager's Turn, said Lt. Wesley Knight of the Lost Creek Volunteer Fire Department.
The wreck involved a Mercury Topaz traveling east and an Oldsmobile Cutlass going west. An adult was driving each car. Three juveniles were in one car and two in the other.
Icy roads could have been a factor, Harrison County Sheriff's Deputy D.S. Quinn said.
School buses and other vehicles sat in a line of traffic, which at times was up to a mile long, while police investigated the wreck.
Rescue teams from the Lost Creek, West Milford, Stonewood and Anmoore fire departments and the Harrison County Emergency Medical Squad responded to the accident.
