The victim was moving the car with another man and a woman around 8:15 p.m. on Cerritos Avenue near Dale Street.
The two men were pushing the vehicle when the driver of a pickup truck rear-ended the car. One man was able to jump out of the way, but the other one could not get free. He later died at a hospital.
The woman, who was steering the stalled vehicle from inside, was hospitalized in critical condition.
The driver of the truck was not immediately arrested or cited. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
