The van drove down the embankment on the eastbound side of the freeway west of Lone Hill Avenue and came to a rest on its side five feet from the Metrolink tracks. One of the occupants, only described as a male, reportedly walked away from the crash and was found bleeding from the hands on Lone Hill, according to CHP traffic logs.

The crash was reported at 10:20 p.m.

While CHP officers on scene were unwilling to give any other details, they were working through a language barrier with the occupants, all of whom are Asian.

A helicopter was summoned by Glendora Police to locate the crash scene.

 

One injured occupant was wheeled out on a stretcher from the collision under the 210 overpass west of Lone Hill to a waiting ambulance. A young woman was walked out by Los Angeles County Firefighters as she clutched a young child. Both she and the child were taken away in a second ambulance.
