Woman injured in solo-car crash on Glendora Mountain Road

ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST — A woman suffered serious injuries early Saturday in a solo-car rollover crash on a mountain road north of Glendora, officials said.
A 20-year-old Los Angeles woman who was riding as a passenger in the 1990 Honda CRX suffered a broken wrist and facial injuries in the crash, which was reported about 12:20 a.m. on Glendora Mountain Road, just south of East Fork Road, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Alex Antillon said. The driver was not believed to have been significantly injured.
The collision occurred as the Honda was traveling northbound on the winding mountain road at about 35 mph, the sergeant said.
Due to “unsafe speed for existing road and traffic conditions,” the driver, a 24-year-old Los Angeles man, was unable to negotiate a curve in the road, Antillon said. He hit the brakes and lost control, causing the car to flip over. It ultimately came to a rest on it’s wheels.
The injured woman was taken to a hospital by a friend, Antillon said.
intoxicated driving was not suspected to be a factor in the crash, he added, and no citations or arrests were made at the scene.
