Police say a driver was trapped in his truck for 30 minutes after he crashed into a parked car on the same steep Beverly Hills road where two Los Angeles police officers were killed in separate crashes with trucks in 2014.

Police said the driver was extricated Friday and hospitalized but his condition was not known.

The crash happened on the same section of Loma Vista Drive where truck crashes two months apart in 2014 claimed the lives of the two officers.

In March 2014, a dump truck collided with a police car, killing Officer Nicholas Lee and critically injuring his partner.

Two months later, off-duty Detective Ernest Allen was killed when a concrete mixer collided with his car.

The cause of Friday's crash was under investigation.
