Two cars colided in a Palmdale intersection, sending two patients from one car to Antelope Valley Hospital and resulting in the arrest of the driver of one car, authorities said Monday.
It happened about 9:30 p.m. Sunday at North 110th Street East and East Avenue O, Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Melanie Flores said.
At least one of the people in one of the cars was trapped inside and was extricated by firefighters using hydraulic tools, Flores said.
It appeared one car was northbound on 110th Street East and one car was westbound on East Avenue O when they collided, Lt. D. Ballentine of the Palmdale sheriff’s station said. The two people taken to Antelope Valley Hospital were in critical condition, he said.
The driver of the other car involved in the crash left his vehicle and fled the scene, Ballentine said. The man returned later and was arrested on suspicion of DUI, the lieutenant said.
