Three children and their mother were injured in a solo-vehicle rollover crash on Soledad Canyon Road, near Highway 14, and the children were airlifted to the hospital late Thursday afternoon.
The three children were airlifted to Northridge Hospital Medical Center and their mother taken by ambulance to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital.
The children were stable but suffered injuries that Battalion Chief Nick Berkuta, of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, described as critical “due to the mechanism of their injury.”
“A vehicle with a parent and three pediatric children lost control of their car which overturned,” Berkuta said at the scene.
The four were hurt when their white car flipped at the “blind curve” on Soledad Canyon Road, near Highway 14.
The traffic collision happened shortly after 4:15 p.m., on Soledad just east of Stonecrest Road.
Traffic on Soledad was shut down in both directions.
“This was for a (traffic collision) on a blind curve on Soledad,” said Sky Cornell, spokesman for the Fire Department.
Rescue helicopter Air Squad No. 19 landed on a closed portion of Soledad, just east of the crash, he said.
Firefighters were dispatched to the crash 4:17 p.m. for reports of a rollover and people possibly trapped in at least one vehicle.
On arrival, they found kids’ clothing and diapers strewn across the roadway.
