Truck Rolls Down 210, Strikes Gas Line Near Teen Center

A woman was arrested and a man detained after the truck they were in rolled off the 210 freeway and struck a gas line Saturday morning.

It was not immediately disclosed how or why the truck rolled off the freeway, nor what, if any, injuries the two occupants may have sustained. Both occupants reportedly fled the truck after it crashed and sheared a gas line behind the Timothy Daniel Crowther Teen and Family Center, 241 West Dawson Avenue.

The suspects were seen running westbound along Dawson.

The crash was reported by a passerby just before 2 a.m. Officers arriving on scene quickly learned a gas line had been sheared and experienced a strong odor of gas in the air, according to scanner reports. Fire fighters quickly arrived and shut off the line.

Officers and a police helicopter searched the area for anyone fitting witness descriptions of the suspects. Officers eventually located the female suspect before 3 a.m. near East Cossacks Place and St. Vladimir Street. She was booked at the San Dimas Sheriff's Station, according to Lieutenant Andy Berg of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Arrested was Bianca Guzman, 21, from Glendora, on suspicion of delaying an officer. She is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.

The male suspect, whose name was not immediately known, was eventually found just before 6 a.m. near the scene of the crash, said Lieutenant Rob Lamborghini of Glendora Police. Officers detained the man until the California Highway Patrol, the handling agency of the crash, arrived. Why the man returned to the crash site is not known.

Officials at the CHP could not immediately say if the male suspect was arrested.
