PASADENA, CA (July 16, 2019) – A motorcyclist is dead following a multi-vehicle accident on the westbound 210 Freeway, just west of Hill Avenue.
The crash happened just before 12:30 p.m. and involved three vehicles in total: one motorcycle, a sedan and a semi truck. A motorcyclist splitting the carpool and left-most lane made contact with a Volkswagen Beetle in the carpool lane, and was thrown from the bike onto the pavement. A big rig also heading west was unable to slow in time to avoid striking the man, who was laying in the lane.
The motorcyclist, who has yet to be identified pending notification of his family, was pronounced dead at the scene around 12:45 p.m. The female driver of the Volkswagen, as well as the male semi truck driver, suffered minor injuries.
A SigAlert was issued for both westbound and eastbound lanes, but was lifted by 4 p.m. Authorities are still investigating factors that caused the crash.
