WESTPORT — Fire and police personnel responded to a multi-car crash Monday night on Bridge Street.

One person had to be freed from a vehicle using hydraulic extrication tools, Assistant Fire Chief Philip Hessberger said in a press release.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the road near 40 Bridge Street at 6:12 p.m., Hessberger said. That is close to The Saugatuck condo complex.

The person rescued from the car was taken by the Westport Emergency Medical Service to a hospital.

Photos provided by the Fire Department appear to show three cars involved. They might be a Chevy Equinox, a Nissan and a Tesla.

The press release did not detail the extent of injuries, but they were probably not serious because there was no lengthy road closure for investigation.

The scene was cleared by 7:13 p.m., Hessberger said. There were no other reported injuries.
