Santa Ana, CA (March 24, 2023) – On Monday morning, March 20, at around 6:00 a.m., on the 405 northbound, OCFA firefighters completed a systematic technical rescue to extricate a woman from her car after a crash.
Authorities say the woman’s truck was wedged between a utility pole and a drainage ditch when the firemen immediately stabilized it and employed hydraulic equipment to extricate the victim. The incident occurred just before Highway 133 in the Santa Ana area near Irvine.
The firemen and paramedics then treated another victim, identified only as an adult male, and transferred him to a nearby trauma facility. The woman was treated at the scene, though it’s unclear if she was also transported to a hospital.
No additional details are available at this time, though an investigation remains active.
Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their fast recovery.
