The single-vehicle traffic collision happened shortly before 2:30 a.m. on the 34600 block of Bouquet Canyon Road, just south of the Chaparral Campground.

“We got the call as a (traffic collision), persons trapped,” Vanessa Lozano, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department told The Signal Monday.
