POMONA — A 19-year-old Apple Valley man died early Saturday after being struck by two vehicles after his motorcycle became disabled on the 10 Freeway, authorities said.
The name of the man was not released pending confirmation that his family had been notified, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Investigator Joyce Kato said.
The crash was reported about 12:30 a.m. on the westbound 10 Freeway, just east of Towne Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Charles Perez said in a written statement.
The motorcyclist’s 2009 Suzuki motorcycle became disabled in the No. 2 lane of the freeway prior to the collision, the officer said.
“The motorcyclist dismounted his motorcycle and while standing in the No. 2 lane, was struck by an approaching Toyota pickup truck,” Perez said.
“The collision threw the motorcyclist into the No. 3 lane where he was struck again by an approaching Hyundai Sonata,” he said. Paramedicspronounced him dead at the scene.
A 25-year-old Azusa man who was driving the pickup truck and a 47-year-old Maywood woman who was driving the Hyundai were not injured, officials said.
After the truck and car struck the motorcyclist, two other cars collided with each other as they maneuvered to avoid the motorcyclist, Perez said. Neither driver was injured.
The cause of the crash was being investigated by the Baldwin Park office of the CHP.
