Crews were continuing to work on getting a victim out of the vehicle as of 1:40 p.m. The victim was out of the vehicle by 1:55 p.m., and the victim was taken away from the scene in an ambulance.
A witness said the driver of the box truck ran a red light at the corner of Lafayette and Verity and crashed into the Ford. The witness said the Ford then was sandwiched between the box truck and a semi truck that was sitting at the red light.
She got out of her vehicle and said the female driver of the Ford was conscious, but unresponsive.
“It was very, very heart wrenching,” the witness said.
Verity Parkway is expected to reopen around 5 p.m. today, according to city officials.
The woman’s identity is being withheld until her family is notified.
