Fiery Fatal Crash Shuts Down Pomona Freeway

By City News Service

One driver was killed in a violent two-car crash that left both vehicles ablaze and shut down the eastbound Pomona (60) Freeway in Monterey Park for hours Monday.

The collision on the eastbound 60 Freeway just west of South Atlantic Boulevard was reported at 5:44 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

A 33-year-old man driving a 1982 Toyota was killed, the CHP reported.

The other driver, a 64-year-old Los Angeles man who was at the wheel of a 2003 Infiniti, sustained only scratches, according to the CHP.

The crash left both cars burning near the center divider and shut down the four left lanes for nearly three hours, Posada said. All westbound lanes remained open, she said.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation by the CHP.
