A witness attempted to pull the woman from her car just after the crash but she was wedged inside. He stayed with the woman until firefighters arrived and got her out of the car.
Medics rushed the woman to the hospital in satisfactory condition with a possible fractured leg. No injuries were reported for the driver of the semi truck and no word yet if the driver will face any charges.
