Two women suffered injuries Monday after a their vehicle collided with a fire truck.

The fire truck was responding to an emergency when witnesses say a Nissan Sentra turned in front of the truck at the intersection of Congress and Columbus. The impact sent the car careening into a light pole and a parked car.

The victims were transported to a local hospital, but witnesses say both women were responsive and seemed to be OK.

Crews had to cut off the doors of the vehicle in order to extract the two victims. A baby seat was in the back seat, but the child wasn't in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

The fire truck was headed to a call at a high rise building at 233 E. Wacker when the accident occurred.

Traffic was backed up while emergency crews tended to the accident.
