One person is arrested for suspicion of DUI and two others are taken to the hospital after an overnight crash in South Chico.

Around 1:45 a.m. Thursday, police responded to a single-car crash on 20th Street at C Street where a car traveling west on 20th crashed into a tree in the median, rolled, and came to rest on its wheels.

That car was destroyed.

Witnesses say a female passenger in the back seat was ejected and the male front-seat passenger was trapped inside the car, forcing first responders to use the jaws of life to get him out.

Both passengers were taken to Enloe Medical Center with major injuries.

The driver, arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, was not injured.
