The Jaws of Life were needed to remove two passengers following a crash on Gaetz Avenue Monday evening.

The Jaws of Life were needed to remove two passengers following a two-vehicle crash on Gaetz Avenue Monday evening.

At about 7:20 p.m. Red Deer RCMP responded to a collision at Gaetz Avenue and 71st Street. Police say one of the vehicles was southbound on Gaetz Avenue when it was struck by another vehicle that was turning west onto 71st Street from the northbound lane.

Two backseat passengers had to be extracted from the westbound vehicle by emergency crews.

All four occupants of the west-turning vehicle were taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and treated for serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the west-turning vehicle has been charged with making an unsafe left turn.
