Ephrata Police responded to a two vehicle crash on US 222 South in the area of mile post 41.8. Police found a silver Toyota sedan driven by male from Shoemakersville, PA struck the rear of a black Ford sedan driven by a male from York, Pa. The Ford reportedly was driving very slow and almost stopped in the south bound left passing lane when the Toyota struck the rear of the Ford. Witness reported the black sedan was all but stopped when they swerved to avoid a crash, however the silver Toyota apparently did not see the black Ford sedan and struck the rear. All four passengers in the Ford, two young children and their parents, were taken to Lancaster General Hospital for evaluation of their injuries. The male driver from the Toyota was not injured. Investigation into the crash is on going. US 222 was closed for about 45minutes to clear the vehicles and debris.
