A crash at the intersection of Denison Avenue and Platt Street blocked traffic on Tuesday afternoon.

The crash was called in at 12:58 p.m., Aaron Wintermote, Riley County Police Department public information officer, said. Wintermote said both cars were towed within an hour of the crash.

RCPD, alongside the K-State Police Department, blocked southbound traffic on Denison Avenue between Platt Street and College Heights Road. Traffic was detoured westward onto Platt Street. Traffic was cleared and back to normal an hour after the crash.

Minor injuries were reported, but both parties were up and walking when officers arrived to the scene, Wintermote said.
