VALENCIA (CBS) — Firefighters rescued a person trapped in a car that has gone over the side of the Golden State (5) Freeway at Valencia Boulevard.

The car flipped over and landed in a ditch, according to Inspector Matt Leveque of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Rescue crews used a raising system to pull the car out, Leveque said.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

The driver of the vehicle was transported to a local hospital with critical injuries, including fractures.
