One person was trapped inside a vehicle after a collision on the 101 Freeway near downtown Los Angeles temporarily closed down a portion of the roadway early Saturday morning, according to California Highway Patrol.

The two-vehicle crash took place just before 3 a.m. on the eastbound 101 freeway, south of Los Angeles Street.

First responders extricated the driver from the vehicle.

Authorities have not released information on the victim's condition.
