Two people have been rescued after they were trapped inside a car pinned underneath a tractor Wednesday night in downtown Gaston, according to fire officials.

Washington County Sheriff's Office says two tractors pulling trailers were traveling southbound on Front Street when a 2006 Pontiac Solstice with two people inside traveling northbound clipped the trailer of the first tractor. This caused the vehicle to be pulled into the path of the second tractor.

WCSO said the second trailer went up onto the car, trapping the people inside.

Just after 10:30 p.m., crews were able to extricate the two people and they were flown to a Portland hospital with injuries described as minor to serious.

Officials closed Highway 47 through Gaston while crews were on scene.
