At precisely 6:42 a.m., rider Kevin Lee, aged 24, had been traveling in the carpool lane before colliding with a ladder lying on the ground.
Lee was ejected from his motorcycle and sadly suffered fatal injuries after being pronounced dead at the scene.
It remains unclear how the ladder ended up in the middle of the carpool lane as CHP will continue their investigation.
Multiple lanes on I-405 south remained shut down after a Sig Alert was issued which lasted for at least two hours.
We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of Mr. Kevin Lee as they search for peace and comfort.
