    HACIENDA HEIGHTS - A California Highway Patrol officer died this morning after he was involved in traffic collision on the 60 Freeway. The officer, whose name has not yet been released, was responding to a single car crash on the eastbound 60 Freeway when another two cars crashed and collided with the officer. He was taken to a local hospital, where he later died as a result of his injuries, Officer Mark Garrett said.
    The eastbound 60 Freeway from the 605 Freeway to Azusa Avenue remain closed as CHP officers investigate the circumstances of the traffic collision, which occurred around 4:30 a.m., said CHP Spokesman Terry Liu.
    "They are conducting an investigation," officer Anthony Martin said. "I can't say any more at this time."
