CLEVELAND -- Five people were rescued from a car struck by another driver, just south of the Innerbelt Bridge early Tuesday morning.

The crash happened before 12:30 a.m. on Interstate 90 West/Interstate 71 South, between the Abbey Avenue exit and the I-90/I-71 split.

A black car was seen swerving on the highway, hit the wall twice, then steered into a gray car alongside it, a witness told Channel 3 News.

Five people were trapped inside the gray car. Fire crews had to use hydraulic rescue tools to safely remove the victims from the wreck.

All five people were taken to the hospital. Four were in stable condition, one was in serious condition.

Police are still investigating the crash and have not released any details.
