A vehicle crashed on Interstate 15 early today south of Corona, and two critically injured people were cut out of the wreckage.
Dispatchers received a call at 12:53 a.m. and sent firefighters to the northbound 15 Freeway north of Temescal Canyon Road.
They found one person outside the wreck, who had managed to get out of the vehicle despite having moderate injuries. Two people with major injuries were still inside, Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson said.
Firefighters freed them, and all three were taken to a hospital for treatment, she said.
