A 22-year-old woman was killed when her car veered off the Pomona (60) Freeway in East Los Angeles and down an embankment, California Highway Patrol officials said Monday.

Officers dispatched at 2:44 a.m. Saturday to the scene found a white Infinity Q50 down the embankment of the westbound freeway near Downey Road, the CHP reported.

The woman, a resident of Rosemead, was ejected from the car and was suffering major injuries. Paramedics took her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 4:40 a.m. Saturday. She was the lone occupant inside the vehicle.

Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in the crash.
