EL MONTE — Authorities Friday released the name of a Whittier woman killed earlier this week in a crash on the 10 Freeway in El Monte.
Antoinette Nadine Gutierrez, 28, died at the scene of the 2:30 p.m. crash on the westbound 10 Freeway, just east of the Durfee Avenue undercrossing, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Assistant Chief of Operations Ed Winter said.
She was driving a 1995 Nissan Maxima when the vehicle veered to the left and struck the center median wall, California Highway Patrol officials said. The cause of the crash was under investigation.
A passenger in the Maxima and Gutierrez’s boyfriend, 25-year-old Alonso Navarro of Whittier, was treated for minor injuries and arrested due to an outstanding arrest warrant, CHP officials said.
According to sheriff’s booking records, Navarro was being held without bail Friday.
