Officials from the California Highway Patrol shut down one lane of traffic on northbound Interstate 5 on Saturday to retrieve a vehicle that went off the freeway Friday night, an officer said.

CHP Officer Jennifer Cassidy said the vehicle, a black Ford Explorer, was traveling at a high rate of speed on the northbound I-5 when it went off the side of the road near Lake Hughes Road around 11:30 p.m. on Friday.

The Explorer eventually came to a rest on its roof about 150 feet off the side of the road.

CHP officers closed one lane on the northbound I-5 around 11:17 a.m. on Saturday to pull the Explorer back onto the road. Cassidy said the vehicle was successfully retrieved around 1:39 p.m.

Cassidy said it does not appear anyone was injured in the incident.

In a separate incident, a pedestrian was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Friday night after being struck by at least two cars on the southbound I-5, Cassidy said.

Cassidy said the collision occurred around 9:26 p.m. on southbound I-5 north of Highway 126.

The pedestrian was transported to the hospital after suffering head trauma, Cassidy said.
