BRIDGEPORT — Two people were taken to local hospitals after a crash in the city on Wednesday.

Reports indicate firefighters were dispatched around 3:24 p.m. to the intersection of Maplewood and Park avenues. Police spokesman Terron Jones said “two vehicles were involved in a motor vehicle incident with injuries near the intersection.”

One of the vehicles appeared to end up stopped on someone’s front lawn on Park Avenue just after Worth Street.

Two passengers from separate vehicles were transported to the city’s hospitals, Jones said. He said there was no further information available later Wednesday.

While crews worked on site, an area of Park Avenue was closed to traffic until 5:11 p.m.
