One man was killed and at least one other person was injured when a car slammed into a light pole in Montebello, near the border with Whittier, the California Highway Patrol reported Thursday.

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

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

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.
