Pinellas Park firefighters rescue driver, reopen 62nd Avenue after wreck

PINELLAS PARK — The area of 62nd Avenue and 44th Street was reopened to traffic Monday afternoon after firefighters rescued a woman trapped in her car after a two-vehicle wreck.

The blockage started around 10:45 a.m. when a Lincoln Town Car and a Mitsubishi collided near the intersection, according to the Pinellas Park Fire Department.

The Lincoln ended up in a ditch along 62nd Avenue, but the driver was trapped inside her car. Firefighters said they had to cut away the driver's door to free her.

The driver of the Lincoln and the driver of the Mitsubishi were taken to local hospitals with injuries that weren't life-threatening, according to firefighters.
