CHP, Cal Fire, and other emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene of the crash around 1:45 p.m., after receiving reports of a rollover accident involving a black Dodge Dart. 911 callers reported several other vehicles were pulled off the roadway and good Samaritans were checking on the status of those involved in the accident.

While officials were still headed to the scene, 911 callers updated that three victims were out of the overturned vehicle and were seen using their cell phones to call for and update emergency services.

Fire and rescue personnel began arriving at the scene around 2:15 p.m., and reported there were no injuries, at which time the bulk of responding emergency personnel were cancelled.

The crash was not having a significant impact on traffic along the winding mountain roadway and a flat-bed tow truck has been summoned to the location.

Officials remain at the scene as of this report and no further updates have been provided.

This is a developing story that will be updated as new information is available.
