CCTV said passers-by pulled the woman from the wreckage of the car before firefighters arrived. Rescuers used a forklift and hydraulic tools to extricate the man.

Both victims were taken to a local hospital where the woman has undergone surgery and the man is said to be “not out of danger yet.”

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
