A driver was killed after losing control of his vehicle and slamming into a slow-moving street sweeper in Gardena early Friday, authorities said.

The crash occurred around 2 a.m. at the intersection of East Alondra Boulevard and South Maple Avenue (map), according to Lt. Scott Aikin with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The driver lost control of his vehicle and clipped the street sweeper before colliding with a light pole, Aikin said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not yet been released.

The driver of the street sweeper sustained minor injuries but declined to be transported to a hospital, according to Aikin.

An investigation was underway into the cause of the crash.
