Minor Injuries Reported in Two Separate Collisions

One vehicle rolled over in a Saturday collision, DUI suspected in a Monday morning accident, police said.

Two people suffered minor injuries in two separate collisions, authorities said.

The extent of injuries in the Saturday, Oct. 6 crash was a complaint of pain, while the injuries sustained in a Monday Oct. 8 DUI crash were bumps, bruises and a complaint of chest pain.

The Saturday crash happened at 10:44 p.m. at the intersection of Barranca Avenue and Route 66. A westbound 2003 Ford Pickup reportedly ran a red light and struck a southbound 1994 Jeep Cherokee, which overturned, said Sergeant Mike Randazzo of Glendora Police.

An 18-year-old female, one of three passengers in the Jeep, complained of pain and was transported to an area hospital as a precaution.

The 20-year-old male driver of the truck was not cited or arrested, Randazzo said.

Police came upon the accident after Glendora PD were notified by Azusa officers of a possible overturned vehicle in the intersection. There was uncertainty about which agency covered the collision since portions of the streets near the intersection are governed by either Glendora, or Azusa. The collision was ultimately in Glendora.

Oct. 8, a DUI driver reportedly struck and damaged a utility pole in the 700 block of East Foothill Blvd. The accident occurred at 1:43 a.m.

Only one vehicle was involved in the crash, Randazzo said, and the 44-year-old female driver received some bumps and bruises. She also complained of chest pains and was transported to an area hospital.

The pole was not heavily damaged, or broken in the crash.

"There was some damage to it, but it wasn't sheared off, or broken," Randazzo said.

The DUI driver was not arrested since she was treated for her injuries. Once police complete their investigation, they will present their findings to the District Attorney who will decide to file charges, Randazzo said.
