BRAZOS COUNTY - A two car accident shut down Highway 21 in both directions for about 45 minutes Sunday night at Cash Lane in western Brazos County.

Seven people were transported to the hospital as a precaution after the accident happened around 8:30.

A woman driving a Chevrolet Malibu was airlifted after being trapped in her car for about 25 minutes and firefighters had to use the jaws of life.

DPS Troopers say a Ford F 350 hit the side of the Malibu while both were heading westbound and the Malibu acted like it was going to make a turn.

"Altogether there were three people in the Malibu and five people in the pickup truck," said Lt. Dan Williams with the Brazos County Precinct 4 Volunteer Fire Department.

"She was a little confused and she tried to go right. The guy was going to pass left and then she started going left again so he was going to pass to the right and she finally decided to go to the right so he ended up kind of almost t-boning her. His front right struck her in the middle of her left panel in the car," explained Trooper Patrick Cox with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

All seven transported were taken to St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan.

None of their injuries are believed to be serious.

Troopers say a baby and the driver of the pickup weren't hurt.
