A 23-year-old man was killed Saturday in a two-vehicle collision on the westbound Pomona (60) Freeway in Diamond Bar, where a motorist was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
The victim was identified as Timothy Rios, said Lt. Dave Smith of the coroner’s office. Smith said he had no place of residence for Rios.
The California Highway Patrol reported that Rios was a resident of Bloomington, in San Bernardino County.
The crash was reported at 2:38 a.m. at North Diamond Bar Boulevard, according to the CHP.
A 2006 Chevrolet Silverado disabled in the No. 1 lane from a previous crash was rear-ended by a 2006 Honda Civic, officials said. The Honda then continued in a westerly direction, where it struck Rios, who was standing in the No. 1 lane of the westbound 60 Freeway, east of Diamond Bar Boulevard.
Rios was pronounced dead at the scene, the CHP said.
The female motorist in the Chevy, a 28-year-old resident of Anaheim, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drunk driving and taken to the Pomona Police Department, the CHP reported. The driver in the Honda Civic, a 49-year- old man from Covina who suffered minor injuries, was not arrested. It was not immediately known if he was cited.
The CHP’s Baldwin Park office asked anyone who saw the crash to call them at (626) 338-1164.
