SYLMAR, Calif. -- (KTLA) -- Actor Danny Trejo has appeared in dozens of action films, and that repertoire may be why he had no problem springing into action after he says he witnessed a two-car collision in Sylmar Wednesday afternoon.
Speaking at the scene at the intersection of Hubbard Street and Jackman Avenue, Trejo said the crash occurred around 3 p.m. after a sedan driver ran a red light and struck a Ford Explorer.
Video shows the SUV overturned and came to rest on its head, while both vehicles sustained significant damage.
Three people were hospitalized as a result, but by the time first responders arrived none of the victims needed to be extricated, according to Margaret Stewart with the Los Angeles Fire Department.
But some of the victims had been trapped, said L.A. Police Officer Tony Im.
