The woman’s air bag deployed when the two vehicles collided, Jones said in a phone interview with the Courier on Sunday afternoon.

“When an air bag does go off, there will be some chest trauma. It will hurt,” Jones said. “It was good to make sure she didn’t suffer any injury.”

The health status of the 62-year-old woman, or the identity of the four occupants, were not released, an no further information about how the accident occurred was available at press time.
