JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A car flips upside down, landing in a nearly six foot deep ditch on Sunday evening. 

It happened shortly before 7 p.m. on Collier Drive, that's just off Bailey Avenue.

Rescuers used a ladder to get the passenger of the car and onto the street. Nearby residents cheered the rescue.

Both people inside the car had to be cut out.

Witnesses say the older model vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, when it swerved to avoid someone walking down the street. Then it flipped several times.

The driver and passenger were taken to a local hospital. No word on their condition.

JPD is investigating the crash.
