The driver and passenger of a stolen car that caused a major multi-car crash in Glendora Wednesday are still in the hospital.
The driver, a 21-year-old Azusa resident, is listed in serious condition. The 20-year-old female passenger, a Menifee resident, is listed in critical condition. She was unresponsive to paramedics while being extracted from the car, police said. The driver may have suffered a fractured pelvis, while the woman reportedly received head trauma.
Authorities are waiting for blood test results to determine if the driver of the stolen vehicle was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The car was reportedly stolen out of Covina.
"When they called the registered owner, they said it should be in the driveway," said Lieutenant Brian Summers of Glendora Police.
Two other drivers were also injured in the collision. A woman driving a tan vehicle was struck while attempting to make a turn at the intersection. She was flown along with the suspect and his occupant to Huntington Memorial Hospital, but has since been released. The driver of a black vehicle that was also hit was treated and released at the scene, Summers said.
The intersection at Lone Hill Avenue and Auto Centre Drive, one of the busiest intersections in Glendora, was closed for roughly five hours while investigators pieced together the events of the collision.
