Four people were hurt when their car went off the Golden State (5) Freeway in Grenada Hills, authorities said Monday.

It was reported about 10:30 p.m. Sunday in the 13100 block of North Sepulveda Boulevard, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Amy Bastman said.

The car went off the Golden State Freeway at Roxford Street and crashed into a fence near Sepulveda Boulevard, the California Highway Patrol said.

Firefighters had to remove four patients from the car using the jaws of life, Bastman said.

They also used a saw to cut the fence to gain access to the car, a news videographer at the scene said.

A 60-year-old man and a 25-year-old man were hospitalized in critical condition, a 4-year-old girl and 41-year-old woman were in serious condition, she said.

The CHP noted a 50-foot cable was needed to recover the car and Caltrans was called to repair the fence.
