A 35-year-old wrong-way driver was killed Sunday during a single-vehicle crash on the Pomona (60) Freeway in Pomona, near the Los Angeles/San Bernardino county line.

The crash on the eastbound freeway, east of Phillips Ranch Road, occurred at about 4 a.m., the California Highway Patrol reported.

The Montclair resident was driving a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta at an unsafe speed, westbound in the eastbound lanes approaching a break in the concrete center divider wall when his car struck the edge of the wall, the CHP said.

The motorist, the lone occupant inside the car, was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol and/or drugs are suspected factors in the crash, authorities said.

The CHP’s Baldwin Park area office urged anyone with information regarding the crash to call them at 626-338-1164.
