Two people were taken to the hospital with non-serious injuries after two cars crashed near downtown Greenport Tuesday afternoon.

A Saab 9-3 sedan was headed east on Route 25 into Greenport when it was hit by a Ford Fusion driving north on Sixth Street, police at the scene said.

Greenport firefighters and ambulance crews were called to the scene and took the two drivers to Eastern Long Island Hospital for evaluation and treatment, said Greenport assistant fire chief Wayne Miller. The two victim’s injuries did not appear to be serious, he said. No one else was injured in the crash, authorities said.

Route 25 was closed in both directions as Greenport firefighters and tow crews cleaned up oil spilled on the roadway and removed the vehicles from the road. The road was reopened to traffic about 3:15 p.m.
