The crash was reported shortly after noon at Corbin Avenue and Plummer Street in Chatsworth, said Officer Connie Silber of the Los Angeles Police Department's Valley Traffic Division.

The motorcyclist, identified by police as Joshua Foote, was taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
