PARAMOUNT (CBS) — A man was killed Monday morning in a two-car crash at the Garfield Avenue onramp to the 105 Freeway, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The man was trapped in his vehicle when firefighters arrived after the crash at 2:33 a.m., Supervising Dispatcher Ed Pickett said.
It took crews 30 minutes to extricate the gravely injured man, who died before he was removed from the vehicle, Pickett said.
Three people reportedly fled the scene of the crash, so it was not known if anyone else was injured.
