A collision slowed traffic along Government Street Friday evening after a Jeep Wrangler collided with a pickup.

Emergency services were called to the intersection of Duncan Avenue and Government Street just after 8 p.m., where they found two female occupants already out of their vehicles, with minor injuries.

Witnesses on scene reported that the pick up ran a red light and t-boned the Jeep on the driver’s side.

The northbound lanes of Government, as well as east and westbound lanes on Duncan were shut down, while emergency crews dealt with the scene.
