Traffic on the 405 Freeway Tuesday Jan. 22, 2014 after a fatal motorcycle crash in the Sepulveda Pass.
A woman on a motorcycle was killed Wednesday morning in a collision with another vehicle on the 405 Freeway that forced lane closures throughout the morning in the Sepulveda Pass.
The crash occurred early Tuesday at Getty Center Drive. The victim was identified as a female adult who was involved in a crash with another vehicle just before 4 a.m., authorities said.
An initial investigation indicated the motorcyclist crashed into the back of a construction vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol. Overnight construction projects are regularly scheduled on the stretch off road during an ongoing improvement project to widen the freeway.
One lane reopened at about 5:30 a.m. At 7:30 a.m., northbound traffic remained backed up to the 10 Freeway, where a brush fire forced the closure of the transition road from the eastbound 10 Freeway to the southbound 405 Freeway.
