The driver of the pickup was taken to Winchester Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries

The area was shut down for 15 minutes as crews on scene were able to open up one lane. Deputies later had to shut down the entire roadway again for 20 minutes to remove the vehicles from the scene. Crews were there for close to two hours.
