A man was trapped inside of his vehicle after a dangerous and out of control rollover accident early Sunday morning in South Los Angeles.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the crash took place in the 4900 block of South Normandie Avenue near the intersection of martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard at around 3:30 a.m., where a speeding driver, a man reported to be in his 20s, lost control of his sports car.
The out of control vehicle then smashed into a median, multiple cars parked along the side of the road, and a utility pole before rolling several times and finally coming to rest on its side.
The driver’s arm was pinned to the ground as a result of the accident, requiring assistance from firefighters to free him from the wreckage. A hydraulic lift was used to lift the car from the ground and extricate the driver, who was then immediately transported to a local hospital for treatment. His condition is unknown.
The crash forced the closure of South Normandie Avenue for a short time as crews worked to pull the man from his vehicle and clean the rest of the debris from the accident from the road. All lanes we reopened after the car was taken from the scene and the utility pole was cleared away.
The full cause of the accident is still under investigation. It is unknown if any other vehicles may have influenced the crash, or if some kind of vehicle malfunction led to the initial loss of control.
High speed rollover accidents like these have the potential to inflict serious damage onto a widespread area. It is fortunate that the other vehicles hit in the crash were unoccupied, and that no one else was injured in the crash.
