Motorcyclist Juan Garcia Zavala, 24 of Canyon Country, collided with a dump truck on Kelly Johnson Parkway and died on the scene Thursday morning, a sheriff’s official said.

Misak Vardanyan, 55 of Van Nuys, pulled his 1983 Peterbilt Dump Truck and trailer out of a driveway on Kelly Johnson Parkway when Zavala’s 2004 Yamaha motorcycle collided with the truck near Rye Canyon Loop, said Lt. Brenda Cambra of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Los Angeles County firefighters treated Zavala but pronounced him dead at the scene, Cambra said. Vardanyan did not sustain any injuries during the incident and was released, Cambra said.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call Detective Robert Smoldt at (661) 799-5111.
