Crash leaves 2 trapped in Santa Barbara

The Jaws of Life were used to extricate two people from their vehicle after a crash Thursday in Santa Barbara.

The Santa Barbara Police Department says it happened at about 11:15 a.m. when two vehicles going opposite directions collided at the intersection of Quinto and Chapala streets.

A Toyota RAV4 ended up on its side off the road. Crews stabilized the vehicle before pulling out the two women inside, according to police, who say they were both taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. An update on their conditions was not immediately known.

The driver of the other vehicle, a Honda Civic, was also hospitalized. He reportedly sustained moderate injuries.

The rescue took about 25 minutes, according to police.

The cause of the crash is under investigation but police say speed may have been a contributing factor.
