INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities say a state lawmaker from northern Indiana and his daughter were badly hurt in a crash at an intersection next to the Statehouse grounds.

Indianapolis police say Democratic Rep. David Niezgodski of South Bend and 23-year-old daughter were taken to a hospital in critical but stable condition after the crash Thursday evening.

Details of their injuries weren't immediately released, but officials say it took emergency crews 15 minutes to free Niezgodski's daughter from the wreckage.

Police Sgt. Kendale Adams says Niezgodski was driving when their car was hit on the passenger side by an SUV. The other driver wasn't hurt. The intersection has a traffic signal, but Adams says investigators haven't determined who had the green light.

Niezgodski was first elected to the Legislature in 2006.
