The driver speeds past other cars and, at one point, appears to be standing up while driving.

As the driver approaches the intersection of Roscoe Boulevard and Fallbrook Avenue, the motorcycle slams into another vehicle and can be seen flying through the air.

FOX 11 reported that the driver died, but this was not independently confirmed by LAPD. The LA Fire Department said the driver was “determined dead on scene.” The driver’s identity has not been released.

LAPD’s Devonshire Division and the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene. LAPD told Fox News that two other people were injured, but the extent of those injuries was not clear.
