Two drivers were seriously injured in a head-on car crash in Freetown, Massachusetts, on Saturday afternoon, police said.

According to Freetown police, the accident took place on South Main Street in Assonet village at around 5.40pm. The two cars suffered heavy damage.

Both drivers were rushed to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford. The cause of the accident was still being investigated by Freetown police on Saturday evening.

“Today’s crash on South Main Street is deeply concerning and our thoughts are with those injured,” Freetown Police Chief Scott Rose said in a statement. “The safety of the community remains our top priority and we urge anyone with information to come forward to assist our investigation.”
