One person died and at least four people, including three children, were transported to a hospital after a rollover crash on the eastbound 91 Freeway in Anaheim on Sunday evening, Aug. 21, authorities said.
The crash occurred at a high rate of speed in the FasTrak lanes just west of Imperial Highway just before 6 p.m., Anaheim Fire & Rescue Battalion Chief Robert Stuart told a freelance videographer at the scene.
The California Highway Patrol was investigating what caused the crash.
Footage from OnSceneTV showed a black pickup truck with major front-end damage and a white Toyota Corolla with heavy damage to the driver’s side.
One person was ejected from the pickup truck and died at the scene, Stuart said.
An adult and three minors were in the Corolla, Stuart said. Which vehicle rolled over was not immediately disclosed.
“I don’t know how it sustained the damage, but it was quite extensive and I was very happy to see that they are walking and being treated right now by a doctor,” the battalion chief said of the Corolla.
Officials planned to remain on scene for at least a couple hours to investigate the cause of the crash and motorists traveling eastbound toward Imperial Highway should expect slowdowns, Stuart said.
