Darien volunteer firefighters, Darien EMS-Post 53, and Darien police responded to the scene on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 9.

An ambulance took one patient to the hospital, police said, and later removed a man from the minivan. The whole process took some time while firefighters tied the car to a nearby tree and lifted one side by placing wooden planks undernath.
