One killed in Harbor Freeway collision in L.A.

September 10, 2011 |  7:51 am

A motorcycle rider was killed in a fiery collision with a pickup truck on the Harbor Freeway south of downtown early Saturday.

The 3:45 a.m. crash, on the freeway’s northbound lanes north of Adams Boulevard, closed the freeway for more than two hours, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

The name of the motorcyclist was not immediately available.

CHP officers were investigating the possibility that the crash was caused by one of the drivers’ attempt to avoid a mattress on the roadway.
