Kathy Orr/Baker City Herald: A rescue worker used a hydraulic 'jaws of life' tool to extricate a passenger from a car that crashed on Highway 86 just east of Baker City around noon today.

Three people were hurt about noon today when their car careened off a steep embankment on Highway 86 about three miles east of Baker City.

The accident happened at a corner on the lower part of Flagstaff Hill, near the highway intersection with Sunnyslope Road and the Grey Eagle Mine Road.

Rescue crews used a hydraulic 'jaws of life' tool to extricate at least one of the passengers from the car.

Names of the driver and passengers, and their conditions, were not available this afternoon.
