Authorities say a Los Angeles area man was killed in a head-on crash which closed Highway 118 in Ventura County for nearly three hours Wednesday afternoon.

The California Highway Patrol says an eastbound flatbed pickup crossed the highway’s center line near North Rose Avenue in the El Rio area, and hit a westbound big rig at around two p.m.  Two other vehicles then slammed into the wreckage.  The driver of the flatbed pickup, Arturo Pinedo of El Monte, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.  No one else was seriously injured.
