The driver of a truck was killed in a fiery six-vehicle crash that set a power pole ablaze and blocked a Torrance intersection today.
Witnesses said the truck was traveling west on Torrance Boulevard at a high rate of speed at about 1:40 p.m. when it came upon backed-up traffic at Madrona Avenue and did not stop in time, according to Torrance police Sgt. Paul
The vehicle hit a tree, several cars and a power pole before flipping onto its roof and bursting into flames on Madrona, Kranke said.
One person in the truck was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Torrance Fire Department Battalion Chief Bob Millea.
Kranke said the deceased victim was the truck’s driver, but the victim’s age and gender were not immediately available.
No one other than the deceased driver suffered anything more than minor injuries, he said.
A 100-foot power pole went up in flames, Millea said.
