A Valencia man died after a four-vehicle freeway crash involving drivers all from the Santa Clarita Valley.

Aaron Braden, 29, was heading north on Interstate 5 south of Interstate 210 Wednesday afternoon when another vehicle pulled into his path, throwing him from his 2007 Suzuki motorcycle and into the rear bumper of a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

According to the report, Tjader France of Canyon Country was driving his 2002 Mercedes "at a near stop" in traffic in the carpool lane, when he pulled out of the lane and into the path of Braden, who was driving between lanes of traffic at an unknown speed, deputies wrote in a report.

Braden's motorcycle continued riderless and crashed into the rear of a 2007 Honda Fit driven by Lisa Schellert of Castaic, according to the report.

Braden was declared dead at the scene by paramedics from the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

There were no reported injuries to the other drivers, and investigators did not suspect alcohol played a role in the crash.
