RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- The eastbound 91 Freeway was completely shut down in Riverside Thursday morning following a fatal crash involving a motorcycle.

The crash happened around 5 a.m. at Magnolia Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Details about what led up to the crash were not immediately disclosed, but AIR7 HD was over the scene where a vehicle could be seen in an embankment just off freeway lanes.
