LOWELL -- Two vehicles, including a taxi cab, were towed from the intersection of Concord and Sherman streets after a crash with injury Monday afternoon.
At least one person inside a silver sedan involved in the crash was transported to the hospital at about 3 p.m. A Checker Cab taxi driver declined to give his name but said the sedan had two people inside. The taxi driver said he was operating with a customer in the backseat while traveling on Concord Street when the female driver went through the stop sign on Sherman Street and struck his cab.
The customer, William Bunker, of Lowell, said he was unhurt in the incident. Bunker said he called a cab to meet up with a friend and found himself involved in his first car accident. He believed the other car passed through the intersection without stopping.
"I'm praying for her and her friend," he said.
The 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 eyewitness 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.
