At least one person died Saturday when a car crashed on the right shoulder of the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway in Tustin.
It was reported at 10:08 a.m. on the northbound Costa Mesa Freeway at Fourth Street, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A Caltrans employee assisted at the scene and told the CHP that the crash involved a white Hyundai sedan with “three occupants down.”
One witness reported someone was inside the trunk of the vehicle, the CHP said.
A CHP dispatcher did not know whether more than one person died in the crash.
Paramedics took three patients to hospitals in critical condition from the solo-vehicle crash, according to Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Greg Barta.
Lanes 2 and 3 were blocked by fire equipment but the roadway was clear at 12:14 p.m., the CHP said.
