A driver who was trapped in his vehicle was hospitalized and in critical condition following a collision in Eagle Rock in the early morning darkness Saturday.

The horrific crash occurred at 2:30 a.m. Saturday on the eastbound Ventura (134) Freeway near the Glendale (2) Freeway, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey. A vehicle smashed into a utility trailer, but it wasn’t immediately clear which vehicle was occupied by the trapped victim.

The trapped driver was taken to a regional trauma center when firefighters freed him, Humphrey said.

No other injuries were reported and the cause of the crash is under investigation, Humphrey said. There were no other details available.
