Traffic Collision Reported in Duarte

At least three injured in wreck on Huntington Drive

UPDATE, 8:47 p.m.: witness accounts revealed one of the vehicles involved in the collision earlier Monday evening may have veered into oncoming traffic, said Lieutenant Loy McBride.

The vehicle was traveling westbound on Huntington Drive when it allegedly veered into eastbound lanes. Deputies reported four vehicles were involved in the crash.

Deputies are continuing an investigation to determine the exact cause of the crash.

The driver of the car that allegedly caused the collision received a severe laceration on his leg and is expected to be fine, McBride said.

Traffic in the area was hampered for an hour while the crash was moved and patients were transported. A secondary crash nearby on Maynard Drive and Buena Vista Street also caused traffic to be further delayed, McBride said.

PREVIOUSLY: At least three people were injured in a two-car collision that occurred some time around 6:20 p.m.

The crash happened near the intersection of Huntington Drive and Brycedale Avenue. One person reportedly received major injuries and required transport by helicopter to County/USC, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department scanner reports.

Sheriff's deputies from the Temple Station worked to direct traffic while emergency crews worked to help the injured.

Two of the injured people reportedly received minor injuries and were transported by ground to Arcadia Methodist Hospital, according to scanner reports.

This story will be updated as information becomes available.

I heard the sirens. As usual I said my prayers.
