High St., apparently was caused by a medical emergency incurred by one of the drivers, Lower Pottsgrove Police Ofc. Matthew Meitzler said. First responders from Goodwill Ambulance treated several people, thought to be both drivers and passengers, at the scene.

No traffic citations were likely to be issued, Meitzler said. The nature of the medical emergency was not specified, and names of the drivers, passengers, or those injured were not immediately available.

The accident occurred at about 10:16 a.m., on the south side of East High in the driveway that leads to the Sanatoga Thriftway supermarket and K-Mart department store. It involved a dark green Jeep wagon and a lime green Kia Soul, both of which were extensively damaged and required towing from the scene. The eastbound lane of East High near the scene was closed for about an hour while the accident was investigated and the vehicles cleared.
