WEST COVINA — An elderly man died Thursday in a two-vehicle crash along Shadow Oak Drive, authorities said.
The crash took place just after 9:30 at Shadow Oak and Shakespeare drives, West Covina police Lt. Pat Cirrito said.
The driver of a Ford Focus killed in the crash was initially described as a man in his 80s, according to West Covina Fire Department Capt. Esteban Rodriguez. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
The driver of the other involved vehicle, a Honda Pilot, was taken to a hospital for treatment of apparently minor injuries. She was described as being in her early 20s.
Initial investigation indicated the elderly man in the Ford was making a left turn from northbound Shakespeare Drive to westbound Shadow Oak drive when his car collided with the Honda SUV, Cirrito said. The Honda was westbound.
Shakespeare Drive is regulated by a stop sign at the involved intersection, while traffic along Shadow Oak Drive flows freely.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation, Cirrito said.
