Law enforcement authorities Sunday were trying to figure out why a pickup truck collided with another vehicle in a deadly crash in a Cerritos intersection.

Ronald Franken, 58, of La Mirada was driving the pickup truck when the two- vehicle crash occurred at the intersection of Marquardt Avenue and Artesia Boulevard, the coroner’s office reported.

The coroner’s office Sunday disclosed Franken’s name as the motorist who was killed in the two-vehicle crash Friday night at about 9:15.

Paramedics rushed Franken to UC Irvine Center, but he died from his injuries hours later.

Authorities have not revealed the condition of the other vehicle’s driver, nor any information about possible passengers.
