Portions of the 210 Freeway in La Cañada and La Crescenta were shut down earlier this morning as Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department homicide investigators were working to determine how a deceased man came to be left on the side of the road. The LASD say the body belongs to an as-yet unidentified white male who was pronounced dead on the scene. His body was discovered at the side of the westbound 210 near the Ocean View Boulevard exit.

For a short amount of time two lanes of the freeway were closed, as was the on-ramp to the northbound 2 freeway at Foothill Boulevard, however all lanes and ramps are now open. Authorities are working to determine the man's identity, as well as cause of death.
