DIAMOND BAR, CA (August 2, 2021) – Andrew Coronado died in a rear-end accident on 60 Freeway in Diamond Bar early Saturday morning.
The accident happened around 3:00 a.m. on July 31, just east of Grand Avenue. According to the California Highway Patrol, the 20-year-old man was inside a stalled Honda Accord, while two other men were outside the car.
