The crash was reported at 7:20 p.m. Friday in the 1100 block of West Harry Bridges Boulevard, according to Sgt. M. Nguyen of the Los Angeles Police Department’s South Traffic Division.

The pickup truck was going westbound at a high rate of speed when it slammed into the other vehicle that was also headed westbound, Nguyen said.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.

The pickup truck driver suffered minor injuries and was taken into custody, Nguyen said.

The investigation will determine whether alcohol and/or drugs were a factor in the crash, he said.
