Parents dropping their kids off at Evans Middle School Monday morning found it slow going.

A head-on crash at the intersection of Chester and Ferry meant parents had to avoid emergency crews cleaning up the scene.

The crash happened just before 7:30 a.m. Two vehicles collided head-on in the right hand lane on Chester.

The collision was hard enough to deploy the airbags in one vehicle.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
