    One person was taken to the hospital after a car collided with a FedEx tractor-trailer in South Windsor Tuesday night, according to fire officials.

    South Windsor Fire Chief Kevin Cooney said emergency crews responded to reports that a car was involved in an accident with a tandem FedEx truck on Sullivan Avenue around 10:40 p.m.

    When firefighters arrived they found the driver of the car pinned. It took about a half hour to extricate the driver, who was taken to Hartford Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Cooney said.

    Fire officials estimated that about 50 gallons of diesel fuel spilled during the accident and said both vehicles were heavily damaged. The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was called in to mitigate the spill. The road was closed until about 2:20 a.m. for investigation and cleanup.

    The South Windsor Police Department is investigating the crash.

    More details were not immediately available.
