The victim’s body remained at the scene at 9 p.m. as detectives investigated the incident, Hawthorne police Sgt. Joe Romero said.

Footage from the area near South Inglewood Avenue and West 132nd Street shows what appeared to be a covered body under a white Mercedes-Benz sedan.

No other injuries were reported.

The California Highway Patrol tweeted that two lanes of the westbound 105 Freeway east of Nash Street were blocked due to a collision. The lanes were reopened less than an hour later.

Officials did not provide further information.
