Fire Station 149 crews arrived on scene in tandem with an ambulance a few minutes later and determined a vehicle rolled over a man’s leg, according to Supervising Fire Dispatcher Melanie Flores.

An American Medical Response crew transported the man to the hospital after county fire paramedics assessed injuries at the scene.

The incident is under investigation by CHP, which is the state agency tasked with undertaking the scope of traffic collisions in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.
