Authorities in Cape May County say one person had to be extracted from a vehicle following a crash Thursday evening in Woodbine.
According to a post on the Dennis Volunteer Fire Company's Facebook page, they, along with members of the Woodbine Fire Department, were dispatched to a crash with possible entrapment on County Route 610 near Mouse Trap Lanes around 6:15 Thursday night.
