A woman was arrested Monday evening in connection with a deadly hit-and-run crash on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway in La Verne.
Witnesses reported a white BMW was being driven erratically near Fruit Street about 8:45 p.m. and nearly crashed into vehicles, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Moments later, officers found a person down on the right side of the eastbound freeway and began to receive calls that a semi was slowing the suspect vehicle down, the CHP said.
The victim was a tow truck driver, NBC4 reported.
Video from the scene showed the driver in custody in the back seat of a CHP SUV and investigators examining the vehicle, which was stopped on the right shoulder of the freeway with the semi a short distance in front of it.
The Nos. 1, 2 and 3 lanes of the eastbound Foothill Freeway near Fruit Street were closed until further notice, but the carpool lane remained open.
The age and name of the victim were not disclosed.
