UPDATED: Teens sustain major injuries

Monday noon update:
A Golden Valley High School basketball player is hospitalized in critical condition after a Friday night car crash, officials said.

Erik Gould, 17, was one of three teens seriously injured in a crash on Soledad Canyon Road just east of Sand Canyon Road.

Gould is in critical condition at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's intensive care unit, said hospital spokeswoman Laura Young.

The names and conditions of the other two crash victims have not been confirmed.

Golden Valley head basketball Coach Chris Printz said Gould had played in a basketball game against Lancaster just hours before the crash. Gould's teammates visited him at the hospital Saturday morning and returned Saturday night after a game against Granada Hills, he said.

"He will probably be there another couple of days before any change in his condition," Printz said. "I know most of the injuries are internal. I'm not a doctor, I don't know to what extent. He had surgery on Saturday to correct a problem."

About 10:30 p.m. on Friday, a 1996 Honda Accord was headed westbound on Soledad Canyon Road when its driver apparently lost control, hit a curb and crashed into a light pole, according to a Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station report.

All three were seriously injured, authorities said.

Ambulances transported three teenage boys to local hospitals Friday night after their vehicle struck a light pole near Prairie Lane in Canyon Country, said a sheriff’s official.

“The driver was travelling westbound on Soledad Canyon Road when he apparently lost control of his car,” said Lt. Mark Hershey.

The driver and his two passengers — all juveniles — were treated at the scene about 10:30 p.m. and taken to hospitals in critical condition, Hershey said.
