According to a witness on the scene, the driver of the truck thought he had seen something on the road, causing him to step on the brakes and lose control of the truck.  

The passenger of the truck was conscious and transported with unknown injuries, according to the witness. Neither CHP nor the L.A. County Fire Department could confirm whether a transport occurred. L.A. City Fire Department officials could not be reached via the department’s media line.
