A head-on crash injured two people in Henderson. 

It happened at about 2:00 Wednesday afternoon at Chestnut and S. Green streets.

In a release, Henderson police said 51-year-old Robert Cook drove across the centerline and hit a vehicle driven by Sandra Townsell head-on.

Firefighters had to extricate Townsell from the wreckage.

Both were taken to Deaconess Henderson but Townsell was later transferred to an Evansville hospital due to what police called “the severity of her injuries.”

The HPD said it wasn’t clear why Cook crossed the centerline.
