LOWELL -- Two vehicles -- including a taxi cab -- were towed from the intersection of Concord and Sherman Streets following a bad crash with injury Monday afternoon.

At least one person, who was inside a silver sedan involved in the crash, was transported to the hospital with injuries at about 3 p.m. A Checker Cab taxi driver declined to give his name at the scene but said the sedan had two people inside. The female driver went through the stop sign on Sherman Street, he claimed, and struck his cab, which he was operating with a customer in the backseat while traveling on Concord.

The customer, William Bunker, of Lowell, said he was unharmed in the incident. Bunker said he called a cab to meet up with a friend and found himself involved in his first car accident ever. He confirmed the cab driver's story, stating he believed the other car passed through the intersection without stopping.

"I'm praying for her, and her friend," he said.

A tow truck on scene took away both vehicles.

Jaws of Life were used to extricate at least one person in the sedan, which spun out and slid into a concrete barrier in front of a home in the small residential area. The driver was reportedly taken away in an ambulance, according to an eye witness account. There appeared to be no structural damage on the front of the property at that intersection.

A supervisor for the Lowell Police department could not immediately be reached for comment and cars were routed around the scene for approximately an hour.
