Five people were injured when two cars collided head-on on Fisher Ferry Road south of its intersection with Grange Hall Road Wednesday evening, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said.

The wreck occurred about 6 p.m. Wednesday, when a northbound 2013 Honda Odyssey van driven by Karen Runnels, 54, collided with a southbound 2000 Ford Ranger pickup driven by Pattie Brown, 18.

Runnels and Brown were both taken to Merit Health River Region, where they were treated at the hospital emergency room and released. A 16-year-old boy who was a passenger in the van was not injured, Pace said.
