EL MONTE — A Whittier woman died Wednesday in a solo-car crash on the 10 Freeway, authorities said.
A 28-year-old woman, whose name was being withheld pending notification of her family, was killed in the crash, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Mike Dulong said in a written statement.
A passenger in the car, 25-year-old Alonso Navarro of Whittier, was arrested due to an outstanding arrest warrant, officials said. He was described as the woman’s boyfriend.
The crash occurred about 2:30 p.m. on the 10 Freeway, just east of the Durfee Avenue undercrossing, as a 1995 Nissan Maxima being driven by the woman was westbound in the fast lane, Dulong said.
“For unknown reasons, she allowed her vehicle to veer to the left and collide with a concrete center median wall,” the sergeant said.
The woman was partially thrown from the car and pronounced dead at the scene by firefighters, officials said.
