A pedestrian was rescued this evening from under a motorhome on the Foothill (210) Freeway in Sylmar.
Firefighters were dispatched to the westbound Foothill Freeway, near Roxford Street, about 7 p.m., where the man was stuck under a Class A motorhome, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Details of the rescue were not available, but Prange said the man “was impaled by an object underneath and that had to be cut to free him,” Prange said.
The rescue was completed by 7:35 p.m., and the man was “conscious, but in critical condition,” Prange said. It was not immediately clear how the man became stuck under the mobile home.
He was taken to a trauma center for treatment.
Westbound lanes of the freeway were closed to traffic during the rescue, and one lane was re-opened after the man was freed.
