PARAMOUNT (CBSLA.com) — A man was killed and two others were hurt Monday in a Paramount crash that sent one car on top of another going in the opposite direction.

The crash happened just before 2 a.m. when a man driving on Rosecrans somehow lost control, swerved and hit a tree.

That impact sent his car airborne, and it landed on top of another car going in the opposite direction.

The people in the second car were treated for their injuries at the scene and did not need to be hospitalized.
