Senior freed from SUV after rollover crash in Covina

COVINA — Officials took a senior citizen to a hospital Sunday after freeing him from his SUV following a rollover collision, police said.
The crash took place about 12:05 p.m. on Puente Avenue near Second Avenue, Covina police Sgt. Gregg Peterson said.
The motorist, a man estimated to be in his 70s, was driving a Honda SUV east on Puente when he struck an unoccupied car parked along the curb, Peterson said.
“He then overcorrected, causing his vehicle to roll over,” the sergeant said. It came to a rest on its side.
Firefighters worked for about 10 minutes and cut the windshield out of the vehicle to free the driver, Peterson said.
He appeared okay, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution, Peterson added.
