Los Angeles County Fire Department officials responded to reports of a traffic collision with persons trapped at 12:19 p.m. in the northbound lanes of Highway 14, near Golden Valley Road, according to supervisor Marvin Lim.

A woman was trapped in a white Toyota sedan that had overturned, blocking lanes No. 1 and 2, according to California Highway Patrol Sgt. Zachary Emmons.

All northbound traffic was stopped as firefighters worked to extricate the woman, according to Emmons.
