A woman was flown to a trauma center Sunday morning after an accident on Canal Road, south of Interstate 10 in Harrison County, officials said.

The two-car accident happened shortly before 8 a.m., said Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan, and the road was closed for more than an hour while crews freed the woman.

Sullivan said fire units from Harrison County Fire Service, Lizana and CRTC, the airport fire unit, extricated the woman, who was driving one of the vehicles. She was treated on the scene by AMR before Rescue 5 flew her to University of South Alabama Trauma Center.

The Harrison County Sheriffs Office investigated the accident.
