Southbound 101 Reopens After Body Found in Freeway Lanes

A person was found dead Thursday morning in the southbound lanes of the 101 Freeway in the Westlake District, but the circumstances of the person's death were unclear.

The incident occurred near Rampart Boulevard about 2:45 a.m., but it could not be confirmed if the person died as a result of being struck by a vehicle or jumped from a bridge over the freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Nos. 1, 2 and 3 lanes of the southbound Hollywood Freeway were closed until around 5:45 a.m., the CHP said.

All lanes were reopened shortly before 6 a.m. and the SigAlert was canceled.
