LA CRESCENTA (CBS) — Several lanes of the 210 Freeway were shut down in La Crescenta Friday morning after a body was discovered just west of the Ocean View Boulevard off-ramp, CHP Officer Anthony Martin said.

Authorities were working to identify the body, as well as the person’s cause of death.

The right two lanes of the westbound 210 Freeway were shut down, as well as the Foothill Boulevard onramp to the Glendale (2) Freeway.

It was not known how long those roads would remain closed, he said.

The coroner was called to the scene.
