AUSTIN (KXAN) — First responders arrived at a vehicle rescue call at approximately 1:16 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of East Riverside Drive and Alameda Drive and reported a two-vehicle collision with a person pinned inside one of the vehicles.
Austin-Travis County EMS originally said there were five patients involved in the crash, but later tweeted the number was increased to eight.

The other four patients involved in the crash had minor injuries and refused EMS transport to the hospital, according to ATCEMS.
