BETHEL — Fire officials reportedly extricated one person from a vehicle late Saturday night after a car rolled over after a traffic incident on I-84 East.

Bethel fire officials said they received a call around 11 p.m. that two vehicles rolled over in a collision, with one vehicle on its side with a trapped passenger.
