The search is on for a big rig driver who slammed into a car, trapping a woman inside the wreckage, and took off.Authorities responded to the scene of the crash at Telegraph Road and Paramount Boulevard along the Pico Rivera and Downey city line Friday morning.

Rescuers had to cut the woman out of the car. She was taken to a nearby trauma center in critical condition.

Considering the impact by the big rig, officials say the woman is lucky she wasn't more seriously injured.

Authorities said the truck, without a trailer, struck the victim's car, causing it to bounce off a telephone pole.

Anyone with any information about the hit-and-run is asked to contact the Los Angeles Sheriff's department at (562) 949-2421.
