Two people were injured in Danbury when a car crashed into two stone walls.  Police, firefighters and EMS responded to West Street near Pleasant Street early Saturday morning and found one occupant out of the vehicle, the other trapped. 

The small convertible also struck a telephone pole, a wooden fence, a mailbox, a sign, a steel pole, and came to rest against a small tree near a house. 

Using the Hurst Jaws of Life, firefighters removed the passenger door and disentangled the victim’s legs from the crushed floorboard.  The front tire was impaled into the floorboard, challenging the rescue.  Both the driver and passenger were transported to the hospital.
