GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Several people are recovering this morning after a scary crash in Gainesville.
In all, eight people were involved in a four-car collision yesterday afternoon at the corner of 6th Street and West University Avenue .
When Fire Rescue arrived, they freed two people who were trapped in the driver and passenger sides of a car.
The others were able to get out safely.
Five adults and three children, who were in car seats, were taken to nearby hospitals with minor injuries.
District Chief of Gainesville Fire Rescue Michael Cowart stated, "Everything seemed to be pretty minor. Everyone seemed to have their seat belts on. So, what could have been a real tragic accident, definitely was made a lot easier with having seat belts in place."
