MOUNT PLEASANT – Two people were injured Friday in a rollover car crash that closed Emmertsen Road near the intersection with Washington Avenue, authorities said.

Mount Pleasant Police responded to a call reporting a vehicle in a snowbank about 11:28 p.m. Friday, according to a press issued Saturday by the Mount Pleasant Police Department. Emmertsen Road was reopened at about 12:21 a.m. Saturday morning following the car crash.

Officers found two vehicles on the east side of Emmertsen that had sustained heavy damage: a 2001 Nissan Xterra and a 2015 Toyota Camry, according to the press release.
