At least 1 killed in big rig crash on EB 60 Freeway

HACIENDA HEIGHTS, Calif. (KABC) -- At least one person has been killed after colliding with a semi-truck on the eastbound 60 Freeway near Hacienda Heights early Thursday morning.

The collision snarled traffic and shut down four of five lanes in the area as officers tried to dislodge the car. Los Angeles County firefighters started to cut the car open to save the person, but were unable to do so.

The 7th Avenue onramp was closed, but traffic on the westbound side of the freeway remained fairly clear.
