A 45-year-old man was freed from the wreckage of a crash involving a vehicle and a big rig in North Hollywood Saturday morning and hospitalized in critical condition.
Firefighters responded to the 12400 block of Sherman Way at 1:45 a.m. where they located a vehicle wedged underneath a big rig with the man trapped, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
“LAFD Heavy Rescue 3 and (Urban Search and Rescue) 88 worked together with firefighters on scene to free the patient from the wreckage,” Prange said. “While equipment was being set up, firefighter paramedics got a head start on patient care to expedite transport once he was free.”
The man’s name was not disclosed.
The cause of the crash was under investigation by detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s North Hollywood Division.
