Three people were transported to Norwalk Hospital early Friday after a head-on collision on Route 123, officials said.
At about 6:30 a.m., a van and car crashed in the area of Smith Ridge Road south of Norholt Drive, trapping the driver of the car, according to Fire Chief Jack Hennessey.
The occupants of the van got themselves out, he said.
“The high energy impact required rescue personnel to use hydraulic rescue tools, saws and a winch to free the trapped driver,” Hennessey said in a press release.
Smith Ridge Road was closed for more than one hour, and reopened at about 7:50 a.m., Hennessey said.
It wasn’t immediately clear who caused the crash, how it happened or what was the extent of the injuries. New Canaan Police are investigating.
The people involved were transported to hospital by New Canaan Emergency Medical Services.
