The Ford pickup then crossed all lanes toward the right shoulder of the 57 Freeway and went down an embankment. Officer Gomez said the impact caused the BMW to hit the center divider, causing one person to be injured. The person was transported to an area hospital, with unknown injuries, that were believed to be minor.
