Sometimes, there’s just no information available.
According to multiple sources, a bike rider was killed in the center lane of the eastbound 101 Freeway near the Laurel Canyon exit in Studio City around 6:11 this morning.
No information was available on the victim or how the crash may have occurred.
The reports said it was unclear if the victim was riding the bike or walking it at the time of the crash.
However, a still from KNBC-4 shows an apparently undamaged bike leaning against the sound wall on the side of the freeway, suggesting that the victim may have left it there before walking onto the roadway.
There was no explanation for why the victim was riding a bike on the freeway, or why he or she may have entered the traffic lanes.
This is the ninth bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the third in Los Angeles County; it’s also the third in the City of Los Angeles.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and all his or her loved ones.
