Highway 1 Head On Collision

When we pulled up on scene, the upside down Honda was the first thing I saw, with two people trapped inside.

Helicopters, when possible are landed off the highway with the goal of leaving a lane open for the California Highway Patrol.

It took firefighter's over an hour to extricate the passenger.

The other vehicle also had two occupants that sustained major injuries from the crash.

Fire paramedics work to stabilize one of the victims.
