Indio, CA -- One person was killed and several others hurt when a pickup truck rolled over on Interstate 10 east of Desert Center, California Sunday.

One of the surviving victims was freed from the vehicle by passers-by who together managed to lift the overturned vehicle enough to pull a woman from the cab of the truck.

From cell-phone video taken of the rescue, it appeared that another person was still inside after the woman was freed. It is not known whether that person also survived.

The accident left the road closed for some four hours and even an hour after reopening, delays of up to an hour remained for westbound traffic.
