DIAMOND BAR – Coroner’s officials Thursday released the name of Pomona killed in a car crash on Brea Canyon Road.
Sung Choe, 53, died at St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton shortly after the 7:25 a.m. crash on Brea Canyon Road, near the Orange County-Los Angeles County border, according to Orange County coroner’s officials.
He was driving a Honda Civic southbound on Brea Canyon Road when he was struck head-on by a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck being driven by a 19-year-old Murrieta woman, California Highway Patrol officials said in a written statement.
The truck had drifted to the right shoulder and struck a guard rail before bouncing back toward the center of the road, officials said.
The pickup truck sideswiped another car being driven by a Rowland Heights woman before crossing into opposing traffic lanes and into the path of Choe’s car, according to the CHP.
The Murrieta woman suffered minor injuries in the collision, and the Rowland Heights woman was unhurt, officials added.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation, and no arrests had been made.
