COSTA MESA, Calif. – One driver was ejected from her car and another driver was trapped insider her vehicle in a rollover collision involving five vehicles on Interstate 405 early Thursday morning.
Witnesses reported that the female driver of the Toyota Solara may have been speeding prior to the crash in which she was ejected from the car, police said. The collision caused another female driver in a Ford Explorer to become trapped in her car. Both injured women were treated on the scene by emergency workers and then transported to a local hospital, police officials said.
There were no reports of injuries to occupants of the other three vehicles involved in the accident which included an airport shuttle van, a Hyundai Tiberon and a limousine. The 6:20 a.m. accident, which closed several lanes for roughly an hour, took place near the 73 toll road, car accident lawyers report.
