Rescuers use the jaws of life to free trapped woman

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Traffic slowed to a crawl on Interstate 55 northbound around noon Wednesday in south Jackson. It was caused by a two vehicle collision north of the Elton Road Exit. 

The driver of a Ford mini-van was transported to a local hospital after slamming her vehicle into the interstate median. 

Responders used  the jaws of life to free the woman trapped inside the mangled wreckage. The front of the mini-van was smashed. Air bags deployed from the impact.   

The driver of a Ford Ranger pickup truck walked away without injuries. However, he was ticketed for no inspection sticker and other traffic violations. 

Lanes on both sides of the interstate were temporarily shutdown.
