The coroners office Monday released the name of a 20-year-old man killed when a car slammed into a light pole in Montebello near the border with Whittier.

He was Luis Olivares of Montebello, said coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz.

The crash occurred at the intersection of San Gabriel Boulevard and Plaza Drive south of the Pomona (60) Freeway about 11:20 p.m. Wednesday, said California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos.

Olivares was pronounced dead at the scene and at least one other person was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries, Villalobos said. Olivares was apparently the driver.

Several vehicles may have also been involved in the accident, he said.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation by the CHP, Villalobos said.
