Three hurt, including child, as cars collide in Roxbury

One person suffered life-threatening injuries and two more were wounded Sunday evening as two vehicles collided in Roxbury, officials said.

Two of the victims — a child and an adult — were trapped inside a car after the crash, which took place near the intersection of Elm Hill Avenue and Seaver Street, Boston Fire Department spokesman Stephen MacDonald said.

The crash took place around 7:45 p.m., according to Boston Police Officer Stephen McNulty.

Firefighters extricated the trapped victims from their vehicle and Boston EMS took them for medical treatment.

It was not immediately clear which of the victims was most severely wounded. One victim had minor injuries, and another had wounds that were not considered life threatening, McNulty said.

A police crash reconstruction unit remained at the scene until after 11 p.m. Sunday, and the area around the intersection remained closed to traffic as both cars sat severely damaged in the roadway.
