A traffic fatality occurred on Foothill Boulevard last Tuesday.
Kathleen Yukl, an active member of the La Crescenta Presbyterian Church and a resident of La Crescenta, was riding her motorbike with her husband when she struck a minivan that pulled in front of her at the intersection of Foothill Blvd. and Tujunga Canyon Place. She was riding alongside her husband on another motorcycle who was not injured.
The collision happened about 8 a.m. The early morning sun may have been a contributing factor. Foothill Boulevard has become more dangerous each day.
