4 die in crash on 60 Freeway

Investigating
Investigators collect evidence on the 60 Freeway in Pomona, where four young men were killed Friday morning in a single-vehicle crash west of Reservoir Street. A fifth passenger was expected to survive. The California Highway Patrol said the victims were in a Toyota Camry heading east at a high rate of speed about 10:45 a.m. when it veered across traffic and struck the center divider twice. The young men were part of a church group caravaning to an ice skating rink in Ontario. (Irfan Khan / Los Angeles Times)

Teens killed
Investigators survey the mangled wreckage of the Toyota Camry on the 60 Freeway in Pomona. Five young men were in the vehicle when it swerved across lanes and slammed into a concrete divider, ejecting three of them onto the freeway. The California Highway Patrol said the 10:45 a.m. crash involved excessive speed, but that it was unclear so far whether the driver was speeding to catch up with others or racing. (Irfan Khan / Los Angeles Times)
