Multiple Critical Injuries After 4-Car Crash in Industry Area
Several people had critical injuries after a four-vehicle crash in the area of City of Industry on Monday evening, authorities said.
Debris was strewn across the street and one vehicle was left overturned near East Valley and Old Valley boulevards about 6 p.m., aerial video from Sky5 showed.
It appeared a dark, four-door vehicle had its windshield knocked out, perhaps by first responders. Another car, a white BMW sedan, sustained severe front-end damage.
One car rolled over and there were four patients, some with critical injuries, Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervisor Flores said.
Two people suffered trauma to their neck and face area, one person broke their leg and a fourth person broke their clavicle, according to Sgt. Carcaheo with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
Officials could not comment on the cause of the crash and could not confirm whether drugs or alcohol played a role.
The area of the crash is on the border of La Puente and Industry.
