Two people walked away with minor injuries following a two vehicle wreck in a heavy rain storm on Thursday afternoon.

It happened around 3:25 p.m. at the intersection of Cass and Tate streets in the edge of downtown Corinth.

According to Corinth Police Sgt. Chad Harville, the driver of a Dodge Caliber SUV was east bound on Tate Street. While crossing Cass Street, the driver's vehicle pulled into the path of a Ford Fiesta sedan. The impact knocked the Dodge onto its side and caused heavy damage to the both vehicles.

There was only one person in each vehicle and both were checked out by EMS and firefighters.

Responding to the scene included police, Corinth Fire Department, Magnolia EMS and Alcorn County first responders.

Cleanup from the wreck slowed downtown traffic on Cass Street for about two hours.

While rain could have been a factor in Thursday's wreck, Harville said all drivers should use caution any day when traveling that stretch of Cass Street from Tate to Cruise.

"There are several blind spots in the area, especially at Wick Street with the underpass," he said. "I'm surprised wrecks don't happened more often in this area."
