UPDATE: 3 People Trapped Inside Vehicle on West Street

UPDATE: (12 p.m.)—Three people were trapped inside a car in the 200 block of West Street after electrical wires fell on top of their vehicle, according to the Annapolis Fire Department.

Emergency crews shut down a portion of West Street around 10 a.m. on Tuesday as they worked to safely extract the people from the car, Battalion Chief John Menassa said.

"We are going to assume the wires are live until we can verify they are not," Menassa said.

A crew from Baltimore Gas & Electric was dispatched to repair the downed wires, but spokeswoman Rachael Lighty said the incident caused no disruption in services to area residents.
