ESTO - No serious injuries were reported after one person was pulled from her car with the jaws of life.
In a statement last week, Esto Fire and Rescue reported a car was hit by a semi-truck shortly after 10 a.m. May 22 at the intersection of Highway 2 and 79. The impact caused the car to spin of course into a store parking lot and into a concrete pole.
The driver, who was not named in the release, was trapped in the front seat and extracted out of the vehicle within two minutes, according to the statement. The semi-truck came to a rest in the ExpressLane parking lot, slamming against the back corner of the store.
No serious injuries were reported. Esto Fire officials stated the wreck occurred after the first vehicle ran a stop sign while traveling westbound on Highway 2. The semi-truck, which was traveling north, had attempted to avoid hitting the car but still ended up hitting the back drivers side door, sending the car spinning into the store parking lot.
