Glendale Motorcyclist Killed in Crash on 10 Freeway
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (August 6, 2018) – Antonio Jimenez, 42, of Glendale has been identified as the motorcyclist killed in a fiery crash early Sunday morning on the Interstate 10 Santa Monica Freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash took place about 4:50 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the freeway at Crenshaw Boulevard in the Jefferson Park community.
The CHP investigators reported that Jimenez may have made an “unsafe turning movement to the left” that caused his 2003 Suzuki GXS-R motorcycle to collide with the center median. The rider was thrown off the bike, but then he was hit by a vehicle whose driver didn’t stop.
After that, a 2007 Toyota Corolla struck the motorcycle and it burst into flames. The car was also set on fire, but the driver of the car was not hurt. Witnesses or anyone with information on the crash may call the CHP at (323) 259-3200.
