Two people were transported to the emergency room after their car rolled over the side of the Lake Hughes Road off-ramp to Interstate 5 in Castaic Saturday night, according to L.A. County Fire Department Supervising Dispatcher Miguel Ornelas.
Emergency crews arrived at the scene at 8:32 p.m. and found one vehicle flipped onto its side with two people trapped inside.
Firefighters worked to free the two occupants while Highway Patrol officers directed traffic around the incident.
By 9:15 p.m., both occupants had been successfully extracted from the vehicle. Fire officials were unable to comment on the extent of their injuries; however, one of the occupants was able to walk with assistance out of the ditch to a waiting ambulance.
