HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA) — Three people were recovering Sunday, a day after a violent crash ended with two people trapped inside an overturned car in Huntington Beach.

Barbara Anderson was walking her two dogs when she witnessed the crash. It created a massive debris field Saturday after one car flipped and landed on some power lines.

“I heard a big crash and I looked over here and I saw all the electrical stuff sparking,” Anderson told CBS Los Angeles’ Jeff Nguyen.

The impact sent a second vehicle right at her.

“I see the car coming at me and I move to the right, and that car when right between my dog and myself,” she said.

That SUV ended up punching a hole right through an adjacent wall.

Another area resident, Omar Espinosa, says he was in his living room around 5:30 p.m. when the crash unfolded.

“Suddenly there was a very loud noise and then shaking,” said the 87-year-old Espinosa.

The crash caused a power outage in the area, and three people were taken to a trauma center after firefighters pulled them from the wrecks.

Police said the accident remains under investigation.
