DIAMOND BAR, CA (July 31, 2021) – A fatal crash injured Juan Cortez and Anthony Rodriguez on the 60 Freeway in Diamond Bar.

The California Highway Patrol identified the men as two of the three victims in the collision which took place on Saturday.

The incident began when their Honda Accord became disabled for an unknown reason in the carpool lane of the eastbound 60 freeway.

CHP said 21-year-old La Puente resident Anthony Rodriguez, was the driver of the car at the time of the Diamond Bar crash. Juan Cortez, 20, of Los Angeles was one of his two passengers.

A Nissan Armada traveling at an unsafe speed approached and then hit the stalled Honda. The Accord rolled over due to the impact, just east of Grand Avenue.
