November 1, 2011 |  6:43 am

The California Highway Patrol was investigating a fatal accident Tuesday morning on the 134 Freeway in Burbank that closed three westbound lanes.

The accident was reported shortly before 5 a.m. on the freeway just west of Buena Vista Street, said CHP officer Francisco Villalobos.

A car struck a pedestrian, an adult man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, Villalobos said.

“We don’t know at this point what the pedestrian was doing on the freeway,” he said.

Coroner’s officials were en route and the three right lanes of the freeway were closed as the investigation proceeded. It was unclear how long the lanes would be closed, he said.
