Angels Baseball Player Mike Trout Involved in Chain-Reaction Car Crash

Angels baseball center fielder Mike Trout was involved in a chain-reaction car crash that injured at least two other people Wednesday night on the 55 Freeway in Tustin.

The crash was reported around 8:50 p.m. on the southbound 55 Freeway near McFadden Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Trout crashed into a vehicle while he was trying to slow down for another car crash ahead of him. Firefighters extricated one person, who was taken to a hospital in Newport Beach, Orange County Fire officials said. A second person was injured and was taken to a hospital in Santa Ana.

Trout was not injured.

"I have spoken with Mike this evening and he feels fine," Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Wednesday. "He is at home with his roommate and is planning on traveling with the club to Seattle."

No other details were immediately available.

Trout did not play in Los Angeles' 3-0 win Wednesday over the Cincinnati Reds. The 2014 AL MVP Award winner is batting .319 with 25 homers and 21 stolen bases this season.
