The California Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate the circumstances around a crash that sent a car tumbling 300 to 400 feet over Glendora Mountain Road.

Firefighters transported two critical patients, two moderate and two patients with minor injuries. Of those six, three were transported to an area trauma center by helicopter, while three were taken by ground for treatment, said David Dantic, Firefighter Specialist with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Firefighters were dispatched at 8:44 p.m. to the crash on Glendora Mountain Road at Glendora Ridge Road Aug. 30.

The victims’ updated conditions were not available.

Firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service also assisted county firefighters, the California Highway Patrol and the San Dimas Search and Rescue Team, Dantic said.

Two of the vehicle’s occupants were ejected during the crash, said Officer Pete Bishop with the CHP’s traffic Management Center.
