Two people were injured and taken to the hospital this morning after an RV left the northbound lanes of Highway 14 and destroyed 50 feet of guardrail near Agua Dulce, emergency crew officials said.

Shortly before 5:15 a.m. Thursday, a Lazydays recreational vehicle slammed into a guardrail in the northbound lanes of the freeway near the Agua Dulce Canyon Road off-ramp, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

“We got the call as a traffic collision with persons trapped,” she said.

Paramedics transported two people to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, one at 6 a.m. and a second person at 6:15 a.m., the spokeswoman said. Fire officials would not disclose the gender or ages of the victims.

California Highway Patrol officers reported the camper pulled about 50 of guardrail off its moorings, but came to a halt still on its wheels.

CHP officers closed the No. 3 lane of the highway while paramedics treated the victims and tow trucks removed the damaged RV. The lane was still closed shortly before 9 a.m., a CHP spokesman said.
