1 Dead, Several Injured In SUV Rollover Crash On The Grapevine

GRAPEVINE (CBS) — A single-vehicle rollover crash on Interstate 5 just north of Grapevine killed at least one person and snarled L.A.-bound traffic Sunday.

The crash was reported about 8 miles north of the 5/99 split, and 15 miles above the L.A./Kern County line, at 1:12 p.m.

All four lanes of the rural freeway were blocked while two rescue helicopters landed on the freeway to pick up injured people.

Early reports from the CHP were that two people were ejected from a silver-colored SUV as it rolled.
