A man was killed Friday in a multi-vehicle crash on the westbound Ventura (134) Freeway in Glendale, the California Highway Patrol reported. The crash near Harvey Drive was reported shortly after 7 a.m., said CHP Officer Monica Posada.
The man, who was in his 30s, died at the scene, said coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter. Authorities withheld his name, pending family notification. Three lanes remain closed in each direction of the freeway while crews work to clear the wreckage, which has snarled traffic from at least Monrovia to Burbank.
The circumstances of the crash were under investigation.
