Two Injured in Rollover Crash in East Lincoln

By  | 

A rollover accident at 148th & O Streets sent two people to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

The Southeast Fire Department, Alvo Rescue Squad and Lancaster County Sheriff's Office responded just after 2 p.m.

Firefighters had to use the jaws of life to pull one of the drivers out of the car.

Southeast Fire Chief John Porter said,"Initial reports were one vehicles had rolled over, one of the occupants was trapped."

Authorities determined the pick-up truck was driving north on 148th Street, while the car was heading west on Highway 34.

Officials said both vehicles landed about 20-30 feet away from the road.

Porter added, "Nobody was ejected fortunately, but obviously with it being off the road makes things a little more difficult, getting equipment back in there, using the airbags and extraction tools because of the trees."

Both drivers were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Speed may have been a factor in the crash, but Southeast Fire Chief John Porter told 10/11 one of the vehicles failed to stop at a red light.
