MONTEBELLO — Coroner’s officials on Friday identified the man killed on the 60 Freeway as Jin Ku Kim, 42, of Los Angeles.
The crash, which involved a car and two big rigs, happened at 2:50 a.m. Thursday on the westbound 60 Freeway, west of Garfield Avenue.
CHP officers said for an unknown reason, a white Acura rear-ended a slower-moving tractor trailer. The Acura became disabled in the No. 3 lane.
The car then struck by a Freightliner. Kim, who was driving the Acura, was pronounced dead at the scene.
An autopsy was pending.
