CHELSEA, MASS. (WHDH) - Three people, including two children, were injured Wednesday afternoon when a motorist lost control, crashed into an auto dealership in Chelsea and bounced off of a parked car, officials said.
Emergency crews responding to F1 Motors on Everett Avenue for a report of a crash just before 1 p.m. found three people trapped inside a mangled vehicle, according to the Chelsea Police Department.
A 12-year-old girl was taken to Mass General Hospital in Boston with a leg injury and possible internal injuries after crews used the Jaws of Life to pull her from the wreckage, officials said. A 44-year-old woman who was driving and an 8-year-old boy were taken from the scene with minor injuries.
“Our crews worked vigorously,”Chelsea Dep. Fire Chief Wayne Ulwick said. “They did a good job. A quick extrication.”
Carlos Bonilla, an employee at a local business, told 7News that he could feel the impact of the crash.
“I felt a big noise,” he said. “Like the building was moving.”
The cause of the crash was not immediately clear. No other injuries were reported.
An investigation is ongoing.
