At least 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.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

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