LOS ANGELES, California -- The 20-year-old driver of a Volkswagon Passat lost control of his car and drove over a guardrail and down an embankment early Wednesday morning on the 710 freeway just south of West Romona Boulevard, California Highway Patrol reports.
Joseph Anthony Salvatierra, 20, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for medical treatment. His injuries were unknown at the time of this CHP report. The traffic accident, which took place about 4:42 am, forced Los Angeles County fire officials to close down the number three lane and issue a SigAlert for roughly four hours.
Emergency crews worked to pull the vehicle from the bottom of an embankment more than 100 feet below the freeway. Additionally, workers were called in to repair an 80-foot section of the guardrail that was damaged. There was also a damaged pole near the accident.
"Traffic accidents are reported in California every minute and 14 seconds and someone is injured every two minutes and 15 seconds," said Attorney West Thomas, founder of The Thomas Law Firm.
