A minor-injury crash temporarily blocked a downtown Vancouver intersection Monday morning.

The two-car crash involving a Toyota Matrix and Chevrolet SUV was reported around 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of East Mill Plain Boulevard and Broadway, said Kim Kapp, spokeswoman for the Vancouver Police Department.

Eastbound lanes were shut down while police and firefighters responded, she said.

Firefighters believed there were no injuries or very minor injuries, said Capt. Kevin Murray, a Vancouver Fire Department spokesman.

“Everybody was standing and talking and exchanging information,” he said.
