REGION - The teen killed in nine-vehicle collision May 10 on the I-10 freeway in Baldwin Park has been identified.
Ryan Milliner, 13, died from blunt force trauma. He was identified by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. His death was ruled accidental.
The crash occurred around 1:43 p.m. on the eastbound I-10 freeway at the Francisquito Avenue off ramp.
The driver of a 2008 International DuraStar flatbed tow truck failed to brake in time for stopped traffic in the No. 5 lane and rear ended a 2018 Toyota Corolla, which was pushed into a 2019 Kia Niro, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The tow truck driver also slammed into a vehicle in the No. 4 lane: a 2018 Nissan Murano occupied by Milliner in the right rear seat, the CHP said.
The Nissan Murano was struck by a 2004 Dodge Ram truck after the former hit the center divider. A 2018 Lexus IS200T then struck the Murano, the CHP said.
The Kia Niro rear-ended a 2008 Honda Odyssey and a 2006 Honda CRV, the latter rear-ended a 2000 Toyota Corolla.
Milliner died at the scene.
One driver suffered major blunt force trauma. Injuries to many others in the crash ranged from major to minor.
