Two people were transported to the hospital Sunday night after their vehicle spun out and into a ditch next to the 5 Freeway in Valencia.
The crash was reported about 10:50 p.m. Sunday, as a vehicle spin out into a ditch on the right side of the northbound 5 Freeway, just north of McBean Parkway, according to Christian Reynoso, spokesperson fro the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
“There were three patients, two people trapped,” Reynoso said.
A Good Samaritan truck driver pulled over when he noticed the headlights of the sedan shining from the small gully bordering the freeway, according to California Highway Patrol (CHP) Logs.
“It was determined that a red Dodge Challenger was driving too fast for the condition of the roadway, causing the Dodge to leave the east roadway edge and collide with a tree down an embankment,” said Officer Josh Greenguard with the CHP Newhall Area Office.
Two of the vehicle occupants were extricated and transported to the hospital, according to Reynoso.
The status of the two people transported to the hospital is unavailable to the media as of Monday morning.
