Video aired by KABC-TV shows Trejo at the crash scene.

Trejo says he crawled into the wrecked vehicle from one side but couldn’t unbuckle the child’s car seat from that angle.

He says another bystander, a young woman, was able to undo the buckle.

Together they pulled the baby safely from the wreckage.

The Los Angeles Fire Department says three people were taken to a hospital, and there were no life-threatening injuries.
