LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A 40-year-old motorcyclist in Valley Glen was killed when he was struck by a motorist making a wide U-turn, police said Saturday.

John Pedone, a Granada Hills resident, was killed by the crash at about 6 p.m. Friday at Coldwater Canyon Avenue and Oxnard Street, according to police reports.

The other driver, a 46-year-old Valley Village woman, apparently made a U-turn from the curb lane on northbound Coldwater Canyon. Her white Ford Expedition was struck from behind by the motorcyclist, who was also going north, according to police.
