Three hurt in highway crash near Soledad

Cory Rubin/The Signal A mangled pickup sits on the side of the northbound Highway 14 near Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country on Monday afternoon, following a collision with a box truck that left three injured and two trapped.

Two were injured and taken to the hospital after the pickup they were in collided with another vehicle in Canyon Country, flipping the pickup and trapping at least one person.

A third person hurt in the same crash was also taken to the hospital.

The two-vehicle crash happened shortly after 2:15 p.m. Monday in the northbound lanes of Highway 14 at Soledad Canyon Road, involving a truck and a black sedan.

Paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to the crash at 2:17 p.m., Fire Department spokesman Franklin Lopez said.

“A pickup truck rolled over an embankment, trapping two,” he said 

Paramedics arriving at the scene at 2:24 p.m. reported finding just one patient trapped.

They immediately worked to free the injured occupant from the wreckage — described by one witness to the emergency response as “mangled” — using hydraulic shears, he said.

Officers with the California Highway Patrol said the pickup was found on its side.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station also responded to the crash.
