August 15, 2004|From a Times Staff Writer

A South El Monte man was killed early Saturday when his pickup crashed into the back of a vehicle parked on the shoulder of the San Diego Freeway in Westminster.

Tan Doan Nguyen, 34, apparently drifted across four lanes of traffic in his white 1988 Toyota on the northbound freeway before striking the vehicle, Orange County deputy coroner Rod Thomas said. Nguyen died at the scene of the 4 a.m. accident, near Springdale Street.

No other details were available. The California Highway Patrol is investigating.
