The crash at 15610 San Bernardino Road -- near Orange Avenue -- was reported just after 2 a.m., the CHP reported.
According to CHP Officer Patrick Kimball, Villagran was traveling west on San Bernardino Road when his car veered to the left, crossed the eastbound lanes and jumped the curb.
The Beetle then smashed into a pole, the officer wrote in a news release.
