WIMBERLEY, Texas (KXAN) — First responders were at the scene of a major crash at a farmers market in Wimberley, Wednesday evening.

The crash happened at Ranch Road 12 and River Road at around 4:38 p.m., according to the sheriff’s office. Two people were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. One of those injured was airlifted from the scene.

KXAN spoke with one of the farmers market vendors who said she and other booth owners are very close. They witnessed a car accelerating through the parking lot.

A woman driving what appears to be an SUV came into the parking lot and crashed into a white van, injuring a man working one of the booths and a female customer.

The operations director for Wimberley EMS says it’s too soon to know what charges will be filed.
