It was a mess. Apparently one vehicle sustained some damage but no pedestrians or occupants were injured. Staff and patients leaving the hospital were unable to turn out of the hospital’s main driveway toward Hwy 4 and had to detour through the downtown area. The buses which travel Alhambra Ave were re-routed.
