PLANTATION, Fla. – Two people were extricated from an SUV Friday following a crash in Plantation.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Northwest Fifth Street and 70th Avenue.

Sky 10 was above the scene just after noon as crews appeared to be trying to free people from inside an SUV that had hopped the curb.

A car with front-end damage, meanwhile, was stopped in the middle of the road.

Plantation Fire Rescue officials said the SUV struck a barrier wall and two adults were extricated from the vehicle.

Daniel Davila, who lives nearby, heard the impact and told Local 10 News reporter Andrew Perez that he thought something had fallen out of the sky.

"The rescue people, they were cutting everything. It was so difficult for them to open the door," he said.

Davila said a lot of people rushed over to help the people in both vehicles after the crash.  

One of the victims was taken to a hospital as a trauma alert while the other suffered minor injuries, authorities said.

Officials said the intersection was closed for a couple of hours.

The cause of the crash is unclear.
