A two-car accident in the 1300 block of Howard Street this afternoon left two people trapped inside their car after it rolled over onto its roof.

Evanston Fire Division Chief Tom Janetske says firefighters from Evanston and Chicago were able to extricate the victims from the overturned car. They were transported to St. Francis Hospital for treatment of their injuries.

Janetske says two people in the other car declined treatment by paramedics.

Police traffic investigators remained on the scene an hour after the 12:30 p.m. crash.
