Posted: Updated:

PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say a deputy has been injured in a rollover accident on the 14 Freeway near Palmdale.

City News Service reports the crash happened early Monday as the female deputy was returning to the Palmdale station after taking an inmate to a regional detention facility.

Sgt. David Sauer says the deputy, whose name was not released, was trapped in the patrol car and was taken to a hospital after she was freed. Sauer did not know her condition.

The California Highway Patrol temporarily shut down the freeway at the Santiago Road offramp during the rescue.

The cause of the rollover accident remains under investigation.

No other injuries are reported.
