Chico, CA – November 28, 2014

Firefighters from Cal Fire-Butte County and the Chico Fire Department worked in the rain and mud to cut off the roof of a Toyota Corolla and rescue a man trapped inside Friday on the Highway 99 northbound off-ramp after a rollover accident.

At approximately 3:45 p.m., the driver of a Toyota Corolla exited northbound Highway 99 and lost control of the car, California Highway Patrol officer Jason Cramblet said. It’s believed she was going too fast.

The Corolla went off the road, crashed into a tree and rolled several times before landing on its left side.

Chico firefighters had to extricate two passengers who became trapped inside the sedan, Chico fire Chief Shane Lauderdale said. Two other people were able to exit the car by themselves.

It was an extensive and technical extrication because Fire Department members had to remove the entire roof from the car, he said. However, the Fire Department prepares for these scenarios in this type of weather, he added.

A child in the car was taken to Enloe Medical Center as a precaution, and the adult male who had been trapped was also taken to the hospital. The extent of his injuries are unknown, Cramblet said.

CHP closed access to the offramp for an hour.

No more information was immediately available.
