GRANBY, Mass. (WWLP) – Two people were taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon following a head-on car crash in Granby.

According to a news release sent to 22News by the Granby Police Department, officers were called to the area of 239 Chicopee Street for a report of the crash at around 2:00 p.m.

Granby and South Hadley firefighters had to remove both drivers from their vehicles. One driver had to be freed with the “jaws of life.”
