GORMAN, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say one inmate and one other person have been killed and 12 others injured as a truck carrying a state prison firefighting crew was involved in a crash with a passenger vehicle in northern Los Angeles County.
County fire Inspector Matt Levesque says the truck and the other vehicle crashed at 2:20 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 138 near Interstate 5 south of Gorman.
He says most of the injured are crew members and the majority are in critical condition. They were taken to several different local trauma centers.
Levesque says the crew is stationed at a camp near the crash site in San Francisquito Canyon in Saugus.
