WEST LOS ANGELES -- A man was killed in an accident on the San Diego (405) Freeway in West Lost Angeles early Saturday, prompting a SigAlert that shut down five northbound lanes.
The accident happened on the northbound 405 just south of Culver Boulevard at 5:34 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
It was unknown how many other people were injured or the extent of their injuries.
A SigAlert was issued at 5:55 a.m., closing five of the six northbound lanes, Nunez said. They remained closed until about 10:00 a.m.
Traffic was slowly recovering by mid-morning, according to Nunez.
The crash occurred near the site of another accident two weeks ago, when CHP motorcycle officer Phillip Ortiz was critically injured after being struck by a motorist on the freeway shoulder.
The crash is under investigation.
