74-year-old man killed in Alhambra car crash

ALHAMBRA — A 74-year-old man died Monday following a solo-car crash, police said.
The man’s name was not available Tuesday pending positive identification and notification of family members, coroner’s officials said. Police described him as a Los Angeles resident.
He was driving in the 2200 block of Fremont Avenue when, for reasons that remained under investigation, his car crashed into a wrought iron gate at a church, Alhambra police Sgt. Esther Rodriguez said.
“When officers arrived, they discovered a 74-year-old male behind the wheel who had suffered head trauma but was breathing,” the sergeant said.
Rescuers pulled the man from his damaged compact car and rushed him to a hospital where he died a short time later, officials said.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call the Alhambra Police Department.
