Firefighters Extricate Two from Crashed Car

A woman and an 8-year-old girl were trapped inside a Honda sedan after it rolled over at High Street and Gibbons Drive this morning, but injuries were minor, police and fire officials said.

The Alameda Fire Department extricated two people from a Honda sedan after a collision and rollover at High Street and Gibbons Drive shortly before 8:30 this morning, according to AFD Capt. James Colburn. (You may see a photo of the scene on the AFD Facebook page here.)

The woman driver of the Honda and an 8-year-old girl were taken to a local hospital for treatment, but injuries appeared minor, Alameda Police Department Lt. Ted Horlbeck said. The woman had minor abrasions and the girl appeared uninjured, he said. Both were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident, he said.

Horlbeck said it appeared that the driver overcorreted and hit a parked vehicle.

Heard all the sirens & knew something serious was going on - wow - amazing the injuries weren't more severe.

Police say seat belts probably helped prevent more severe injuries.

Glad no one was badly injured but am wondering how a sedan going only 25 mph can turn over.
