A young woman was trapped in her car, and firefighters had to use the jaws of life to free her. Trout was not charged in the crash, according to CBS Los Angeles. Trout’s car and two others collided while trying to stop for the original crash,
Angels general manager Billy Eppler confirmed the report and says in a statement he’s spoken to Trout and “he feels fine.” Eppler says Trout was at home and is planning to travel with the club Thursday to Seattle.
