A woman suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital Tuesday morning after her car left the northbound lanes of Highway 14, flipped and went down an embankment.

California Highway Patrol officers are following up on reports received from motorists that the woman was cut off prior to the crash.

The solo vehicle traffic collision happened about 9:20 a.m. Tuesday on the northbound 14 just south of Sand Canyon Road.

Paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched at 9:22 a.m. for reports of an over-turned vehicle and the possibility of someone trapped inside the vehicle, a Fire Department spokesman told The Signal Tuesday.

“The patient had minor injuries,” he said.

Although there were initial reports of the car being on fire, firefighters from Fire Station #150 found no fire.

“A lot of times people see powder from the (deployed) air bags,” one responding firefighter said.

CHP are investigating the crash.

“If she copied down some sort of description of the vehicle, if she had a license plate number, we would put out an alert,” CHP Officer Josh Greengard said.

“We would be on the lookout,” he said. “Looking for that vehicle.”
