MARICOPA -- A couple in their 70s were trapped inside their minivan after colliding with a car outside a grocery store in Maricopa Thursday afternoon.

When crews arrived at the Fry's on North John Wayne Parkway at approximately 2 p.m., they found the car with extensive front-end damage and the minivan lying on its side with the couple still trapped inside.

According to Brad Pitassi with the Maricopa Fire Department, firefighters removed the windshield and pulled back part of the roof to free the couple.

All three patients received non-life threatening injuries and were transported to local hospitals for further treatment.

Pitassi said the three people escaped serious injury or death because they were wearing seat belts.
