About 12:20 p.m. on Feb. 5, LAFD emergency workers responded to the collision and cut the roof off the vehicle to rescue the injured person. The victim was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for treatment and was listed in critical condition.

Los Angeles Police are investigating the crash to determine liability. The report did not indicate whether other vehicles were involved or if it was a solo accident.
