The natural world turned just short of upside down for the driver of an SUV on Thursday morning when the vehicle was clotheslined by low-hanging cable across Glendale Boulevard.
NBC LA reports that the accidental booby trap — which lifted the SUV off the ground and slammed it down into the back of a truck — was the result of an earlier single-vehicle accident in Echo Park that knocked down a pole and left power lines low and stretched out on the street.
At least three vehicles were thought to be involved in a series of crashes along that section of road. One individual was taken by ambulance to a hospital. Their identity and the extent of the injuries were not immediately known. Northbound lanes and one southbound lane were temporarily closed to clear away hazards.
