The CHP website reported that someone was trapped in a black SUV lying on its side, the U-T said.

"Fire rigs and patrol cars blocked traffic lanes while firefighters freed the injured person from the wreckage and loaded the victim onto the helicopter about an hour later," the U-T said. "Some lanes remained blocked while a tow truck pulled the vehicle off the freeway."
