A traffic accident left one person injured, and triggered a brush fire which caused a big traffic tieup near the Ventura County-Los Angeles County line.
It happened just before 2:30 p.m. yesterday, on the 118 Freeway near Rocky Peak Road.
A vehicle went out of control, and plunged over an embankment, bursting into flames. The driver escaped with minor injuries.
The fire led to a big backup on the freeway, but the small blaze was controlled in less than an hour.
