A driver and passenger of a car had to be extricated from their vehicle after it struck a tree Thursday night in Carpentersville, authorities said.

First responders were called to the 400 block of Tulsa Ave. at 9:15 p.m. after the driver's sedan left the roadway and struck a tree near the adjacent sidewalk, according to Lt. Brian Berry of the Carpentersville Fire Department.

Firefighters had to cut off two doors on the vehicle to gain access to the two women, who were pinned underneath the dashboard, Berry said.

Both occupants, who were described as women in their mid-20s, were transported to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin. The extent of their injuries is unknown.

No one was on the sidewalk at the time of the crash, and no other injuries were reported.
