Man dies after driving car into center divider in Arcadia

A man was killed early Sunday when he drove his car into a center divider, then was ejected from the car and run over by a second vehicle in Arcadia, California Highway Patrol officials said. 

Erick Mauricio Carrillo, 28, of Pasadena was driving west on the 210 Freeway about 1:20 a.m. when he abruptly swerved from the far right lane, across the freeway and into the concrete divider, according to a CHP report. 

Carrillo, who wasn’t wearing a seat belt, was flung from his Ford Mustang onto the carpool lane, suffering fatal injuries, according to the report. He was then struck by a truck traveling in the carpool lane. 

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Highway patrol officials said they believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. 

Anyone with information about the incident was asked to contact the California Highway Patrol’s Altadena station.
