WEST COVINA, CA (January 14, 2022) – A car crash on 10 Freeway involving 3 vehicles left four people with major injuries Friday night.
The incident happened around 11:41 p.m., on the westbound lanes of the freeway just east of Holt Avenue.
According to reports, a 25-year-old man in a 2020 Kia Optima rear-ended a 2007 Ford Expedition. Consequently, the SUV lost control and struck the center divider wall.

Responders also took a male passenger from the Highlander with serious injuries to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center.
