One person was killed Friday in a multi-vehicle collision involving a big rig in South El Monte.

Officers from the California Highway Patrol responded at 3:25 a.m. to the westbound Pomona (60) Freeway and the Peck Road offramp where they found several vehicles involved in the fatal collision, including a black Mercedes SUV and a big rig, said a CHP spokeswoman.

Information was not immediately available on the identity of the fatally injured person, who died at the scene.

The collision closed three lanes of the freeway as the CHP investigated the circumstances surrounding the crash.
