The Lancaster New Era is reporting that two people were trapped in their car, which flipped onto its roof in Lancaster Township last night. According to Lancaster Township Deputy Fire Chief Glenn Usdin, the car was traveling at a high rate of speed in the 600 block of South West End Avenue around 8:15 p.m. It failed to negotiate a bend in the street, struck two parked cars and flipped onto its roof. Usdin said the vehicle and its occupants had been involved in a city police incident immediately prior to the wreck, but said they were not fleeing from police.
First responders to the scene reported the occupants of the car were still inside and unable to exit. Both people were reported to be conscious and stable as rescuers worked to free them. Usdin said firefighters removed one of the car doors and pulled out both people, who were taken to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.
