Los Angeles man dies in Glendora freeway crash

GLENDORA — A man died early Saturday in a two-car crash on the 210 Freeway in Glendora, authorities said.
Miguel Montes, 66, of Los Angeles was pronounced dead at the scene, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Kurt Stormes said in a written statement.
The crash was reported at 12:53 a.m. on the westbound 210 Freeway, just west of Grand Avenue, the sergeant said.
Traffic was moving slowly on the freeway because right two lanes had been shut down for Caltrans work, officials said.
Montes was driving a 1995 Buick at about 5 mph in the fast lane, as a 17-year-old Monrovia boy in a 1995 Honda was approaching from behind in the carpool lane at about 45 mph, Stormes said.
The Buick made an unsafe lane change into the carpool lane, he said, and was rear-ended by the Honda.
The teenage driver of the Honda was treated for minor injuries, officials added.
Montes suffered major head trauma and succumbed to his injuries, Stormes said.
