Six people were injured after a police pursuit ended in a five-car crash on Monday evening in Glendora, California.

At about 5:45 p.m., officers with the Azusa Police Department were pursuing an Acura Integra that had been allegedly stolen, according to Officer Rodrigo Jimenez, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol’s Baldwin Park office.

The car was moving south on Barranca Avenue in unincorporated Glendora when it crossed the center median and hit a Toyota Camry at the intersection of Barranca Avenue and Arrow Highway.

The crash resulted in a chain reaction, striking three more cars in the intersection, Jimenez said. The crash took the driver out of the stolen car, who was not using a seatbelt, he said. The driver and the only passenger in the car suffered major injuries and were admitted to a hospital.

The passenger of the hit Toyota Camry suffered small injuries and was admitted to a hospital. Everyone else involved in the collision was able to walk away without being admitted to a hospital, Jimenez said.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department said a total of six people were injured, of which two are having serious injuries.

Jimenez said the driver of the stolen car was possibly driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
