Rescuers had to extricate a woman after a serious car accident in Grand Island Monday morning.
Rescuers used the jaws of life to reach the victim of a bad car crash Monday morning.
It happened on Baseline Road and Grand Island Boulevard.
Fire Chief Kevin Koch tells Eyewitness News that the woman extricated is in her 50's and was taken to Erie County Medical Center for injuries to her extremities.
First responders believe both vehicles were driving on Baseline Road at 8:30 in the morning. Koch says one vehicle tried making a turn and t-boned the other car.
The damage was so severe, Koch says they had to tear off the doors and roof to get to the victim.
Koch says "it was an older vehicle, the impact from it, there was quite a bit of protrusion in the passenger department. That's why we wound up having to extricate her out of the car."
The driver of the second vehicle, an SUV, was treated for chest pain on the scene and then taken to Kenmore Mercy Hospital.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts and are expected to make a full recovery.
Nobody else was in either vehicle.
The fire chief says the intersection can get busy during rush hour, but is usually a safe area.
