Vehicle Collision Disrupts Services as Patients Seek Alternatives Following Pomona Clinic Accident

In a startling incident, two individuals required hospital treatment after an out-of-control vehicle tore into a medical complex located in Pomona on Monday evening. The incident, which took place close to the intersection of Orange Grove Avenue and Artesia Street at approximately 11:15 p.m., resulted in several demolished offices within the facility.

The California Highway Patrol observed that the car seemed to be traveling at excessive speeds along the westbound 10 Freeway before it collided with a “do not enter” sign during its exit. Following the sign collision, the vehicle continued through the intersection, mounted a curb, and ultimately came to rest inside the medical building.

Pomona Valley Hospital, situated directly across the street, received the pair from the wrecked car. Reports indicate their condition was stable as of Tuesday night. A healthcare worker associated with the impacted building commented on the extensive damage, noting that his office was rendered unrecognizable by the accident. He expressed relief that the event occurred after-hours, potentially sparing greater calamity.

The building’s property manager disclosed that upwards of five medical spaces suffered damage, one of which is an OBGYN practice. With repairs underway, patients originally scheduled for appointments within the damaged building were instructed to seek services at alternative locations. One such patient, whose critical appointment to determine the gender of her child was interrupted by the incident, shared her disappointment.
