3 hospitalized in overnight Cypress Park crash

CYPRESS PARK, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Three people were hospitalized on Friday after a vehicle slammed into a parked truck and a brick fence in Cypress Park.

Los Angeles police said four people, a 17-year-old and two adults, were in the car when it crashed into the other vehicle and then a home at about 2 a.m. in the 500 block of West Avenue 28.

Witnesses said one person was trapped until rescuers were able to pull him from the wreckage.

Nearby good Samaritans also ran toward the scene to help.

"We run up the alley and the first thing I see is everyone getting out of their car. One of them told me there was one in the car, so we went to go see and on the left passenger side, one of the kids was squished by the door," said good Samaritan Alejandro Cuevas.

Authorities said one person suffered serious injuries and the other passengers complained of pain, but no injuries were life-threatening.

Investigators said they do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. The cause remained under investigation.
