UPDATED: Driver severely injured in 10 Freeway crash in Pomona

POMONA — A 67-year-old man suffered major injuries Saturday in a solo-vehicle rollover on the San Bernardino (10) Freeway, authorities said.
The crash took place about 12:40 p.m. on the westbound 10 freeway at Garey Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Kerri Rivas said.
A Desert Hot Springs man was driving a 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck at 50 to 65 mph when, according to witnesses, he lost control as he tried to change lanes, the officer said.
“For unknown reasons he veered to the right,” Rivas said. The Tacoma struck a concrete wall and veered back toward the left, before again veering to the right side of the road and striking the wall a second time.
The impact caused the truck to spin 180 degrees and completely roll over, ultimately coming to a rest back on its wheels in the right-hand lane and shoulder, officials said.
Rescuers found the man unresponsive and he was taken by helicopter to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, Rivas said. An update on his condition was not available.
The cause of the crash was being investigated by the Baldwin Park office of the CHP.
