A mother and a daughter were taken to the hospital Monday night after their vehicle, along with another, plunged into a sinkhole in Chatsworth.
Calls about the sinkhole, located at 11414 Iverson Road, near the 118 Freeway, came in around 7:20 p.m.
A total of four people were initially trapped, but two of them were able to exit their vehicle uninjured before first responders arrived, the Los Angeles Fire Department said in a news release.
The road, which was continuing to “sluff and deteriorate,” required crews to secure the vehicles from further shifting to rescue the occupants.
“Firefighters conducted a high angle rope rescue operation, using the aerial ladder, and safely extricated both patients,” the release stated.
Both sustained minor injuries and were taken to local hospitals,.
