A 32-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a crash Saturday on the northbound Harbor (110) Freeway in South Los Angeles.

The crash was reported at 1:55 a.m. just north of the San Diego (405) Freeway, said California Highway Patrol Officer Elizabeth Kravig.

The motorcyclist, riding a 2006 Kawasaki, cut in front of a 2015 Toyota Camry while on a freeway transition road from the northbound 110 to the northbound 405 and struck the left side of the Toyota, the CHP reported.

The motorcyclist was ejected from his bike, slid underneath the Toyota and stopped in the No. 4 lane of the transition road, where he was run over by a 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck, the CHP reported.

The motorcyclist, a resident of Gardena, was pronounced dead at the scene, Kravig said.

The motorist driving the Camry, a 20-year-old man from Long Beach, suffered moderate injuries and the driver in the pickup truck was not injured.

The 190th Street on-ramp to the northbound 110, the northbound 405 transition to the northbound 110, and the No. 2-5 lanes of the northbound 110 were closed for the investigation but were re-opened at 5:15 a.m.
