Video from SkyForce10 showed crews working to free a man from the vehicle involved.

"I saw a car, an SUV come up the side of the trolley and try to pass in front. What the driver and I didn't know was he was actually trying to make a turn onto 9th street instead of just going in front" Angie Lofton, a passenger on the trolley told NBC10.
