Foothill traffic stalled after two-car crash
Traffic was diverted for a short time on Foothill Boulevard on Wednesday, April 8 as Claremont police and Los Angeles County Fire responded to an injury accident near Berkeley Avenue.
According to an eyewitness who called 911, officers arrived to the scene around 3 p.m. after a charcoal-colored Ford Focus attempted to cross Foothill at Berkeley and was struck by a silver Hyundai Accent traveling west on the main thoroughfare. The impact of the collision caused the Ford to flip onto its side, resulting in the 76-year-old male driver and his 73-year-old passenger being sent to Pomona Valley Hospital after complaining of pain. The driver of the Hyundai, a 20-year-old female from Redlands, her passenger and her eight-week-old puppy were treated at the scene.
