    A multi-car wreck in Pomona on Sept. 18, 2013, critically injured multiple LA County Sheriff's Department deputies.

    Two sheriff's deputies were released from the hospital Thursday morning after being critically hurt in a multi-car crash in Pomona the night before, authorities said.

    The deputies were responding to a call when the wreck happened about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday at Temple Avenue and Valley Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

    Two vehicles -- a sport-utility vehicle and a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department patrol car -- were involved in the crash, a fire official said. The SUV was knocked onto its side in the collision, aerial footage showed.

    Two deputies, both men, were released from the hospital by 7 a.m. Thursday after being treated for injuries, said LASD Sgt. Wessel.

    The driver of the SUV, a 57-year-old West Covina man, was seriously hurt. There were no updates on the other driver's condition, but officials said he was in a better state than the deputies when he was hospitalized.

    Further information about the crash was not immediately available.
