NORTH HILLS (CBSLA.com) — A fatal motorcycle crash in North Hills Monday night backed up traffic for miles on the northbound 405 Freeway.

The collision occurred at 8:44 p.m. when a motorcycle collided with a BMW just south of the Roscoe Boulevard off-ramp, according to California Highway Patrol.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. No further details were released about the victim.

It wasn’t immediately clear if other vehicles were involved.

CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos says several motorists stopped to help.

Four of the freeway’s five lanes were closed as crews worked to clean up the wreck.
