NAMPA-- Firefighters were able to cut a trapped man out of his car following a crash at a Nampa intersection this morning.

The wreck happened around 6:45 a.m. at the intersection of 11th Avenue North and Ustick Road.

The intersection is a two-way stop, with stop signs on 11th Avenue North.

Canyon County Sheriff's deputies say the driver of a red Chevy Cavalier headed northbound on 11th Avenue North ran the stop sign and was T-boned on the passenger side by the driver of a white Ford F-250 pickup headed west on Ustick Road. The impact of the crash caused the truck to roll and the car to go off the road. Both vehicles ended up in a nearby field.

The drivers were the only occupants in each vehicle, deputies say.

The driver of the Chevy had to be extricated by firefighters. He was transported to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise with possibly critical head injuries and body trauma.

The truck's driver was also injured. He was taken to St. Luke's in Meridian, and then to Saint Alphonsus in Boise with possible serious injuries.

Deputies are continuing to investigate the crash, but say the driver of the car will likely be cited for failure to yield.
