Norwalk firefighters used the Jaws of Life to extricate an injured woman after a two-vehicle accident Friday afternoon.

"We just popped the door with the spreaders," Lt. Brett Beers said.

He estimated it took about five minutes to get the woman out of the vehicle. Beers said it appeared she sustained a left hip injury.

North Central EMS transported her to Fisher-Titus Medical Center.

The names of the drivers and sequence of events weren't available because Norwalk Police Capt. Mike Conney's report wasn't complete at press time.

"I know at least one person went to the hospital," Capt. Dave Smith said.

The accident happened just before 12:25 p.m. at the intersection of Old State Road and Gallup Avenue. Beers said firefighters returned to the station just after 3 after helping clean up the scene.




I seen the vehicles after the accident, ands the one vehicle could not have been going only 35. I live on this road and vehicles fly down this steet (old state).
