A man was killed Thursday morning in a three-car crash on the 60 Freeway east of Mountain Avenue in Chino, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The driver has not been identified by the San Bernardino County Coroner’s office, pending notification of next of kin, said Officer Steven Rawls.

His age and city of residence has also not been released.

Investigators said an adult female was driving a 2013 Mazda in the eastbound lanes at 7:44 a.m. when she collided into a 2017 Ford, which was in the No. 3 lane of the freeway, Officer Rawls said.

The collision forced the Ford to veer to the left and it struck a 1997 Ford that was in the carpool lane, the officer said.

That collision caused the 1997 Ford to overturn several times. The driver was ejected from the vehicle, Officer Rawls said.

”The Ford came to rest within the No. 2 lane of the eastbound 60,” he said.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene by Chino Valley Fire District paramedics.

Anyone with information on the crash can call the California Highway Patrol’s Rancho Cucamonga office at (909) 980-3994.
