Two women were killed Sunday when a car rear-ended another car on the Pomona (60) Freeway, authorities said.
A 24-year-old man also suffered minor injuries in the crash on the eastbound freeway, west of Reservoir Street, which occurred a little after 2:05 a.m., the California Highway Patrol reported.
A woman driving a 2019 Honda Civic was travelling at "an unsafe speed" and rear-ended a 2013 Toyota Camry that had stopped to avoid a previous crash ahead, the CHP said. That woman and a 23- year-old woman from Chino -- a passenger in the Camry -- were pronounced dead at the scene.
Paramedics rushed the driver of the Camry, a 24-year man from Chino, to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center with minor injuries. Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the crash.
