No one was injured when a sheriff’s department SUV in South Los Angeles collided with a white pickup truck, causing the vehicle to overturn and temporarily trap three people inside, authorities said Saturday.
Firefighters and paramedics dispatched at 10:42 p.m. Friday to Manchester and Western avenues did not take anyone to the hospital, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
A sergeant with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was in a patrol SUV en route to an assistance call at the time of the crash, a lieutenant at the sheriff’s South Los Angeles station said. The sergeant was not injured.
The SUV crashed into the side of the truck, ABC7 reported, causing it to turn onto its side, trapping a man, woman and a small child. Rescue crews quickly responded and took the three people out of the white truck.
It was not immediately known if anyone was cited or arrested.
