Fatal motorcycle accident to close Sunset Blvd. west of 405

picture-26.pngA male motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene of an accident that took place shortly after 3pm around 11500 Sunset Blvd, a few hundred feet west of the 405 underpass. The motorcylist was reported to have been trapped underneath a truck.

Via LAFD Alerts, spokesman Brian Humphrey writes to “anticipate Sunset Blvd closure for investigation.”

This accident follows an earlier entrapment report from the southbound 110 at the 105, where the LAFD initially reported an SUV had collided with and become trapped under a big rig, only to amend with this message:

Female SUV driver/sole occupant not trapped; Fled scene after colliding w/rear of bobtail truck.
