Authorities on Friday released the name of a motorcyclist killed in a collision in downtown Los Angeles.
Michael Thomas Hodges, 29, of Los Angeles, died at a hospital following the Thursday afternoon crash at the intersection of Cesar Chavez Avenue and Broadway, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
He was riding on Broadway when a 78-year-old Los Angeles woman attempting to turn left onto Cesar Chavez Avenue drove into the path of the motorcycle about 2:50 p.m., according to a sergeant at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Division.
The woman, whose name was not released, stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators. She was not immediately cited or arrested, but the case is under active investigation and the findings will be referred to prosecutors, the sergeant said.
