A vehicle pursuit ensued and ended when the car exited the southbound 5 Freeway at Mission Road and flipped over, Solano said.

The driver, who was the sole occupant of the car, was trapped inside until firefighters responded to remove him. The driver, who was not immediately identified, was then transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition, authorities said.
