One person was injured and taken to the hospital Tuesday morning after a car flipped over in the southbound lanes of Highway 14 near Agua Dulce.

The crash happened a couple of minutes after 11 a.m., prompting the dispatch of county firefighters, including a helicopter rescue crew for initial reports of people possibly trapped.

When firefighters arrived, however, they reported finding one person trapped inside one vehicle described as a white Dodge sedan that had flipped onto its roof, Brian Stevens, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said shortly after noon.

The helicopter was initially expected to land on the highway, where California Highway Patrol officers stopped traffic. Instead, the county rescue helicopter was called off.

“Firefighters extricated one patient and transported that person to a local area trauma center,” he said.
