A man in his "late 20s or early 30s" is dead after a fatal motorcycle accident on the 134 freeway at the 5 near Glendale.
CHP received word of a downed motorcycle around 6:30am on Tuesday. The rider was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials aren't releasing much information, and won't say whether or not there were other vehicles involved. CHP logs did indicate that there was interest in a dark colored big rig with a square covered load on a flatbed. The truck scales in Castaic and Camarillo were asked to be on the lookout for that vehicle but it is not known if it played a role in the collision.
Only one lane of the freeway was open for the morning commute, backing up traffic on to the 210 freeway.
All lanes were opened shortly after 10pm.
