NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Officials say rescue crews had to use the jaws of life to free a woman from her vehicle after a crash near Newark.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports (https://delonline.us/1NcnC08) two women were injured in the two-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon.

Christiana Fire Chief Rich Perillo says both victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

New Castle County Paramedics spokeswoman Sgt. Abigail Haas says fire officials used the rescue tool to get a 55-year-old woman out of her vehicle. She says the woman was treated on the scene for possible head and upper-extremity injuries. She is in stable condition.

Haas says the second woman, believed to be in her 30s, was taken to the hospital. Her condition is unknown.

The Delaware State Police is investigating the collision.
