NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -- Detectives with the Covington Police Department are investigating a two-vehicle accident that left two people injured. The accident occurred Saturday at 3:05 p.m. on Highway 190 near Holly Road. 

According to a St. Tammany Parish Fire Department spokesperson, a collision occurred between a mini-van and a pickup truck. The accident left the front seat passengers in the van, injured and trapped in the vehicle. A 45-year-old woman and 60-year-old man were cut from the vehicle.  The 60-year-old man was taken by helicopter to an unknown hospital. The 45-year-old woman was transported to St. Tammany Hospital by ambulance. A 12-year-old boy and 50-year-old woman, who were riding in the back seat were not hurt.

The 49-year-old driver of the pickup truck was uninjured. The Covington Police Department is investigating the accident. Firefighters on scene say that the guardrails that were recently installed, prevented the vehicles from falling in the roadside ditch.
