December 7, 2010 |  8:34 pm

A 24-year-old motorcyclist was killed and a boy was critically injured Tuesday in a Torrance traffic collision, authorities said.

Lawrence Brennan was riding his motorcycle north on Anza Avenue about 1:40 p.m. when the driver of a sedan traveling south on Anza made a left turn onto Emerald Street, Torrance Police Lt. Devin Chase and a coroner’s official said.

“There is a traffic light at that intersection and the light was green but possibly phasing to red,” Chase said.

Brennan, a Torrance resident, was pronounced dead at the scene. A boy in the sedan was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries. The extent of the injuries sustained by the woman driving the vehicle were unknown.
