The California Highway Patrol has closed Angeles Crest Highway about three miles north of the 210 in the Angeles National Forest near La Canada Flintridge after a man's body was discovered this morning near the Angeles Crest Forest Fire Station.

The man's body was discovered around 5 a.m. on the Angeles Crest Highway by a passing motorist who called 911. CHP had originally anticipated reopening the highway at 10:30, but it now thinks it will be closed for most of the day.
