A 45-year-old San Pedro woman was killed Sunday after the stalled car she was in was rear-ended by another vehicle on the Glendale (2) Freeway, officials said.
The woman, Teresa Rodriguez, was pronounced dead about 1:34 p.m. at the scene of the crash, which was just north of Mountain Street, according to the California Highway Patrol.
“This is a bad area,” said Glendale Fire Battalion Chief Greg Godfrey. “We have multiple [traffic collisions] in this area.”
Rodriguez was a passenger in the 1997 Honda driven by a 71-year-old San Pedro woman when it began to experience engine troubles on the northbound freeway.
