A 41-year-old man was killed Friday morning in a collision between a flatbed tow truck and a mid-size sedan in downtown Los Angeles.

Firefighters responded at 1:50 a.m. to the westbound lanes of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway at the San Pedro Street off ramp and found the tow truck on top of the car and a man inside the sedan trapped in the wreckage, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The man was beyond medical help and pronounced dead at the scene, Humphrey said.

No other injuries were reported.

The California Highway Patrol investigated the cause of the crash.
