TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One person is in the hospital after a car left the roadway and hit a tree and a parked truck.

Northwest Fire District crews used the “Jaws of Life” to extricate the passenger in the small Honda sedan in the 2400 block of W. Wetmore Road around 1 p.m. She was taken by an ambulance to the UAMC trauma center in serious but stable condition, according to NWFD Capt. Adam Goldberg.

The driver was out of the car before crews arrived and he did not need to be taken to the hospital.

Goldberg said both of the 18-year-olds involved in the crash did not wear seatbelts.

Wetmore Road was closed for part of Monday afternoon but has reopened to motorists.

Crews are investigating what caused the car to leave the roadway.
