A woman was killed and another person was hospitalized Saturday afternoon in a crash on the 91 Freeway in Long Beach.
The crash was reported at 1:32 p.m. on the westbound freeway at Downey Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Stephen Brandt told City News Service.
Witnesses told the CHP the motorcycle was traveling at high speed when it collided with a black Dodge Charger and a gray Subaru, leaving two riders down in the No. 2 lane.
A woman was pronounced dead at the scene, Brandt said.
Paramedics took another person to a trauma center for treatment, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatch supervisor.
It was not clear whether the deceased was the motorcycle driver or passenger or the age and gender of the injured person, Brandt said.
All westbound traffic was temporarily diverted off at Lakewood Boulevard but the HOV lane was opened around 2:10 p.m., although lanes 1, 2, 3 and 4 remained closed.
