LOS ANGELES, California (April 1, 2016) — A 27-year-old man identified as David Olney was killed Wednesday afternoon when his motorcycle was involved in a multi-vehicle collision in the 1400 block of West Carson Street, near Haldale Avenue, a Los Angeles Police Department report said.
The fatal crash took place about 3:25 p.m. when the bike reportedly rear-ended a vehicle that was stopped in traffic to allow a pedestrian to walk across the street in a crosswalk.
