    Two people received minor injuries in a rollover crash on Route 9 southbound in New Britain on Wednesday afternoon, according to police.

    Police said a car driven by Jeffrey Ziegenhagen of Plainville was traveling southbound when Ziegenhagen lost control and struck a metal guardrail, spinning across both lanes of the highway.

    A Buick driven by Ernesto Arocho collided with Ziegenhagen's car, according to police.

    Ziegenhagen received cuts on his heads and head and reported having back and neck pain. Arocho reported having rib pain after the crash, police said.

    The highway was shut down between exits 30 and 29 while crews worked to clear the scene.

    Traffic was heavily delayed after the highway reopened.
