California Highway Patrol officers are investigating two separate fatal accidents on Southern California roadways Saturday morning.

The first took place about 2:50 a.m. on the eastbound 60 Freeway at Azusa Avenue, involving a sedan and a big rig carrying 20,000 pounds of produce, according to a CHP report.

[Updated at 11:59 a.m.: The driver in the 60 Freeway accident has been identified as Jonathan Guzman-Vaca, 22, of Diamond Bar, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.]

The accident has closed all but one lane on the eastbound side of the freeway until at least 8 a.m., the CHP reported.

The second accident took place an hour later on Lambert Road and Fireside Drive in Santa Fe Springs when a car carrying four people crashed into a pole, according to a CHP report. One woman in the car died on the way to the hospital, according to the report.

[Updated at 11:59 a.m.: The coroner's office reports that a second person has died in this accident, though in both cases the names are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.]

No further details were available early Saturday.
