CRAWFORDVILLE, Fla. -- A man had to be freed from his vehicle by fire and emergency workers following a collision between a car and a mobile home.

According to Fire and EMS Chief Michael Morgan, authorities responded to the crash at 11:17 a.m. on Tuesday. They were notified after Wakulla Sheriff's Deputies noticed the crash, which happened in front of River Sink Elementary School. 

Authorities say it happened when a westbound four door sedan was struck by a southbound motor home pulling another vehicle on a trailer.

The driver of sedan was able to exit the vehicle on his own and refused treatment from EMS. He told workers that he would go to the hospital with a friend.

The driver and passenger of the mobile home told EMS workers that they weren't hurt. They were both from Tennessee.
