One person was killed in a crash on the northbound Harbor (110) Freeway in downtown Los Angeles Thursday morning.

The crash occurred just north of Third Street about 4:45 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Nos. 1, 2 and 3 lanes of the freeway are blocked until further notice, the CHP said.

The age, gender and name of the victim as well as details of what led up to the crash were not disclosed.

This is the second deadly crash in as many days in that same location.

Early Wednesday a Caltrans subcontractor was killed in a hit-and-run crash and authorities searched for a dark SUV with front-end damage.

The victim was a 48-year-old man from Fallbrook in San Diego County.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to this subcontractor’s family,” Caltrans tweeted Wednesday. “Please remember to move over and slow down when you see emergency vehicles. October also marks the 10th anniversary of California’s `Move Over’ law expanding to include Caltrans vehicles.

According to the agency, at least 189 Caltrans workers have died while toiling on the state’s roads since 1921.
