PIQUA — First responders in Piqua were kept busy on Wednesday afternoon.

A two-vehicle crash occurred on South Street at McKinley around 2 p.m., when a vehicle apparently rear-ended another. Four victims were transported to Upper Valley Medical Center by multiple Piqua Fire Department medic units.

A short time later, Piqua Fire Department medics were called to another crash, this one on Piqua-Troy Road near Gainsay Street, where the driver of a car lost control and struck a utility pole. The impact sheared the pole at the base, with the pole landing in the middle of the roadway.

The driver was taken to UVMC by Piqua medics.

Piqua-Troy Road was closed for a couple of hours following the crash while utility companies replaced the pole.

Piqua Police are investigating both crashes. None of the injuries appears to be serious.
