ELKHART — Two people have been hospitalized after the vehicles they were driving collided on Old U.S. 20 west of Elkhart.

The crash, which happened around 2:45 p.m. today, Oct. 13, in the 29700 block of Old U.S. 20, left the road closed for about an hour. As of 3:40 p.m. emergency officials were allowing one lane of traffic through the area of the crash just east of C.R. 1.

The injured were identified as Kayci Mast, 20, of Goshen, and Brian Bunten, 44.

Mast was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital of South Bend with injuries to her neck and left arm. Bunten had scrapes on his stomach, cuts on his lower leg and a possible broken finger, police said. It was not immediately known which hospital Bunten was taken to.
