LA VERNE: A 35-year-old Ontario man and his 9-year-old daughter remained hospitalized Tuesday after their car rolled over during a two-car accident Sunday. Brian Sterling and daughter Nancy were airlifted to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center after the 2 p.m. accident at Arrow Highway and Fairplex Drive. Brian Sterling was listed in fair condition with broken bones in both legs, and Nancy was listed in serious condition with facial fractures. Sterling's car was traveling east on Arrow Highway when it collided with another vehicle trying to make a left turn in a controlled intersection.

POMONA: Two men and a teen-age boy were arrested on suspicion of auto burglary Friday night after police conducted a stakeout in a parking area used as a shuttle location for the Los Angeles County Fair. Shawn Donald Pruitt, 19, of Ontario, Sixto Barrera, 20, of Chino and a 17-year-old boy from Ontario were arrested after police officers saw one of the suspects cut into the soft top of a car, reach in, open the car door and get in. Police were conducting the stakeout because of two reports of auto burglaries the previous evening.
