2 Transported to Hospital After Danbury Crash

Two people were transported to the hospital after a single-vehicle crash in Danbury early Saturday morning.

First responders were called to a serious motor vehicle accident on West Street near Pleasant Street.

When police arrived, they said they found one person trapped in a car. Another person had already gotten out of the vehicle, firefighters said.

Firefighters who arrived shortly after said a small convertible had struck a telephone pole, a wooden fence, a mailbox, a sign, a steel pole, two stone walls and then came to rest against a tree near a house.

According to fire officials, firefighters used multiple tools to remove the passenger door and disentangle one person's legs from the crushed floorboard.

Once the person inside of the vehicle was rescued, he or she was placed into the care of Danbury EMS, firefighters said. The second person was transported to the hospital by a second ambulance.

The Danbury Police Department is investigating the crash.
