    National park rangers, police, and firefighters responded to a crash in Sandy Hook this afternoon, authorities said. 

    Two people were injured when two vehicles collided inside the park, said Gateway National Recreation Area spokeswoman Daphne Yun.

    The crash occurred on Atlantic Drive near Hartshorne Drive in the northern portion of the park. 

    “It looked real bad. It seemed like a nurse had pulled up onto the scene before paramedics arrived,” said JSHN contributor Bill Senck.

    A medevac was initially requested but subsequently canceled, according to Monmouth County Police, Fire & EMS on Facebook. 

    Both were transported to a local hospital for treatment, Yun said. The extent of their injuries and identities were not immediately known. 

    The spokeswoman did not have additional information to supply.
