State Highway 1 has reopened after a fatal motorcycle crash shut down the highway just south of Pacifica in both directions Tuesday afternoon, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash involving a pickup truck and a motorcycle was reported on Highway 1 just south of Devil's Slide at about 2:55 p.m., CHP Officer Kevin Bartlett said.

The motorcyclist was killed in the crash and Highway 1 was shut down while emergency officials responded to the scene.

Northbound traffic was shut down at Montara State Beach, and southbound traffic was stopped at Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica, Bartlett said.
