The driver of a Honda sedan had to be extricated from her vehicle after the accident impact trapped her inside. No one was injured in the two-car crash.

The accident happened at about 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday.

A Dallas Fire & EMS crew had to cut the door off a Honda sedan to help woman who was trapped, but uninjured. Two children, one an infant, were able to get out of the car with the help of other motorists, said Dallas Fire & EMS Chief Fred Hertel.

The second vehicle, a pickup truck, landed in the ditch on the side of the road, but all occupants were uninjured and able to escape the vehicle on their own.

“Everyone is OK,” Hertel said. “It’s very fortunate for the extent of the damage to the vehicles.”

Hertel said the cause of the crash hadn’t been determined yet.
