ARLETA, Calif. – A child was ejected from a BMW sedan and the driver was trapped as a result of a two-vehicle crash in Arleta Sunday evening.
The crash happened just before 9 p.m. at 13952 W. Terra Bella St., said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.
The child, whose age and gender were not made available, was ejected from the vehicle, according to Humphrey. It was unclear if the child was buckled into a car seat, or needed to be but wasn’t.
Firefighters used hydraulic tools to free the driver from the car, according to KTLA5. Both were taken to hospitals in critical condition.
A police sergeant investigating at the scene told the station the BMW was T-boned by a Toyota Camry when it attempted to make a U-turn. It was not made clear, however, which driver was at fault.
