LA HABRA — A 25-year-old man was trapped in his car early Wednesday, April 19, after crashing into and getting wedged underneath a tractor-trailer on Harbor Boulevard

LA HABRA — A 25-year-old man was trapped in his car early Wednesday, April 19, after crashing into and getting wedged underneath a tractor-trailer on Harbor Boulevard, police said.
Los Angeles County firefighters had to get him out, and the man was sent to the hospital with unknown injuries, said Sgt. Jeff Baylos of the La Habra Police Department.
Around 2:47 a.m., an 18-wheeler was stopped on Harbor Boulevard and Francis Avenue, just south of Whittier Boulevard, to make a delivery. The truck, facing north, was backing up and had his flashers on, Baylos said. The only major businesses on the northbound side of Harbor are a recently opened O’Reilly Auto Parts and a KFC restaurant.
The driver of the car was heading northbound on Harbor and ran into the truck, Baylos said. It is unclear how that happened. The truck driver was not injured.
The crash blocked northbound Harbor until about 8:30 a.m., Baylos said.
It is not yet known if drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash, but it is under investigation.
