CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Two people ended up taking a trip to the hospital after a wreck Wednesday afternoon in Cape Girardeau.

It happened around 2:30p.m. on north Kingshighway near Hopper.

Police say it appears a van was pulling out of the pharmacy's parking lot and pulled in front of a pick-up truck.

The driver of the pick-up swerved to avoid the van and pulled into the southbound lanes.  It ended up hitting another car head on.

Both the truck and the car ran off the road and into a ditch.

Two of the people in the truck were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
