A person died after falling out of a tree in the Beverly Hills area Thursday.

Beverly Hills Police Department officers were called to the area of North Beverly and Coldwater Canyon drives just before 3:30 p.m. on what was initially reported as a traffic collision and found the person down at the scene, according to police.

Paramedics were called to the scene and pronounced the person dead. The person’s identity was withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Details leading up to the person’s death were unclear, but police reported a preliminary investigation indicated the person may have been a landscaper who was working in the area at the time at the fall.

Coldwater Canyon Drive was closed between Linda Crest and North Beverly drives for an unknown duration as authorities investigated the death.
