MONROVIA — Paramedics pronounce a Pasadena man dead inside his car along the side of the 210 Freeway early Thursday after he suffered an unknown medical problem, officials said.
The body of Jack Serrano, 54, was discovered inside his Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck just before 6 a.m. along the right shoulder wall of the eastbound 210 Freeway at Myrtle Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Kerri Rivas said.
It was unclear when Serrano actually lost consciousness, she added.
A Freeway Service Patrol worker noticed the truck along the side of the road and noticed a man inside slumped over the steering wheel and unresponsive, Rivas said. The worker was unable to open the truck’s doors.
Paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced Serrano dead about 6:22 a.m., officials said.
The Los Angeles County Department of Coroner will perform an examination to determine how Serrano died.
