EL CENTRO — Officers from the El Centro Police Department were dispatched to Imperial Avenue and Bradshaw for a reported traffic collision between a small passenger vehicle and a Volvo semi-truck. 

Upon arriving, the officers located a Gray Hyundai passenger vehicle which had rolled over and was upside down in the drainage ditch parallel to the roadway. There was at least one person trapped inside the vehicle at the time. 

The officers immediately attempted to open one of the doors to extract the driver but were unsuccessful. 

The El Centro Fire Department arrived a short time later to assist. The injured driver was identified as 29-year-old Audiana Baro, who was safely removed from the vehicle and was later flown by Reach to Desert Regional Medical Center for further treatment. The collision remains under investigation.
