Woman freed from wreckage after crash; flown to U-M hospital
Firefighters freed a woman from the wreckage of her car after a crash in Ypsilanti Township this afternoon. She was flown to University of Michigan Hospital by Survival Flight helicopter in stable condition, Fire Capt. Vic Chevrette said.
The woman was driving south on Rawsonville Road just north of Bemis Road about 2 p.m. when the sedan went off the west side of the road and rolled a few times, Chevrette said.
She was pinned in the wreckage, and firefighters from Ypsilanti and Van Buren townships worked for about 20 minutes using the Jaws of Life to free her, Chevrette said.
Chevrette said the woman was in stable condition when she was flown to the hospital.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department was investigating the accident, but spokesman Derrick Jackson was not immediately available for comment.
