Motorcyclist killed on Interstate 10 in Alhambra

A motorcyclist was killed Tuesday on the westbound San Bernardino Freeway  in Alhambra, the California Highway Patrol said.

It was not immediately clear whether any other vehicles were involved in the accident, which occurred about 6:25 a.m. east of Garfield Avenue on the freeway, also known as Interstate 10, said CHP officer Krystal Carter.

The carpool and No. 1 lanes were closed until further notice. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene, Carter said.

The identity of the victim was withheld until family could be notified. No one else was reported injured.
