One person was killed in a head-on collision in Boyle Heights late Sunday night.

The crash happened on the Sixth Street bridge over the 10 Freeway. Police said a car was speeding when it crossed into oncoming traffic and crashed with another car just before midnight.

The speeding driver was ejected from the car and died at the scene. The driver of the other car was not seriously injured, but neighbors who came to his aid say he was pretty shaken up.

"He had a big gash and so we tied the shirt around his arm, and I was just holding on to his hand," said one neighbor.

The driver was taken to the hospital, but he is expected to be OK.
