Four people were injured Sunday night in a two-vehicle accident on the Danville bypass, police said.
At 11:30 p.m., a 1996 Nissan Sentra driven by Ray Lasoya, 20, of Richmond, was stopped at a green light near Gose Pike, according to police. A 2000 Mitsubishi, driven by a juvenile, rear-ended Lasoya’s vehicle.
Lasoya was trapped inside his Nissan and Danville firefighters had to use the “Jaws of Life” to extricate him from the car. The driver of the Mitsubishi and two passengers sustained injuries; authorities did not release their names because of their ages. U.S. 150 was closed for about an hour so emergency crews could clear the scene.
All four people involved in the collision were transported to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center and treated for injuries. As of press time, officials did not know the extent of anyone’s injuries.
