Man, 36, Killed After Being Struck By As Many As 20 Cars On 10 Freeway

LOS ANGELES (CBS) —  Officials believe a pedestrian who was struck and killed on the 10 Freeway early Monday may have been hit by as many as 20 cars.

The victim, identified late Monday as 36-year-old  Ronald Edward Hill Jr. of Los Angeles, was hit near the Crenshaw Boulevard off-ramp, according to Officer Anthony Martin of the CHP Traffic Management Center.

The body was discovered just after 3:40 a.m.

The preliminary investigation indicated the victim was moving south across the westbound lanes and eventually hit in the number 4 lane, said CHP Officer Monica Posada. It’s unclear why he was trying to cross the freeway, she said.

The right two lanes and Crenshaw Boulevard off-ramp were shut down for the investigation through the morning rush hour period.

Anyone with information about the fatal hit-and-run was asked to call the CHP at (213) 744-2331.

      W T F – NOT ONLY ARE YOU TRULY A MORON OF THE LOWEST ORDER WITH YOUR “one less illegal”. Can you not EVEN know how to read past the 1st. grade level? ALL YOU BIGOTS ARE SO FULL OF HATE AND teeny tiny brains!

      Ronald Edward Hill, jr. Is NOT A LATIN NAME. The fact is you are a true coward that cannot do anything other than spew your venom behind your computer.

  • Dawn

    • laura

    • James

      Definitely an illegal — those Canadians are flooding our country!

    • A saddened family member

      no he was not an illegal. He was born and raised in Los Angeles

  • so what!!

    More taxpayer’s $$ wasted trying to clean up this POS illegal.

  • Ed Rooney

    Illegals should understand that this is America & not the US-Mexico border crossing. Running across freeways here at your own risk.

    The CHP should post up signs on the freeways with pictures like the ones in the US-Mexico border with Man/Woman/Child holding each other’s hands and running across the road.

    • laura

      why does it everybody think it’s an illegal. he has the last name, HILL !!!!

    You clowns are obsessed with immigrants. If you focused more on your own lives, perhaps you wouldn’t be angry that they’re outcompeting you for minimum wage jobs.

    Keep posting your asinine comments and the rest of us will keep laughing at you.

    • Wow

      Totally agree, David. Everyone’s angry because of their own shortcomings and underachievement in life. I do agree that illegal immigrants to put a drain on the California economy, but at no time do I ever wish anyone death like most people do on here. As far as crime, illegals do commit them, but most of the violent crime in L.A. is caused by the people born right here.

    • Wow

      I meant born here.

  • skip


    • laura

      They can’t read.

      • johnny chingas

        You’re not kidding.

  • frances m

    did any of you read his name, you do know to read, I hope. His name does not sound illegal does it?

  • johnny chingas

    Dang, you people are tipping the stupid scales today.

  • Bryan Devianza

    And there’s also 20 drivers out there who need their licenses revoked.

    • Oops....

      No kidding! No one stopped! Who cares if he was white, black, brown, pink or green! That’s absolutely inhuman.

    To: “One Less Illegal, Dawn, so what!, Ed Rooney”

    Did you guys read the name of the moron who did this? Ronald Edward Hill Jr. Does that name sound like an illegal to you? Apparently yes, as you all still posted your dumb ass comments.

    This was probably some crack-head or junkie high on meth thinking he was playing frogger, or some homeless person that was done with it all.

    Jeez you ass munchers. Get over it…better yet, as David said, “Keep posting your asinine comments and the rest of us will keep laughing at you”.

  • JD

    Interesting how the most illiterate people are the ones that complain the most about illegals.
    In any case, this was a horrible tragedy.


    White Trash cannot read. WHITE TRASH IDIOTS.

  • LMFAO @ White Trash

    Nothing but stupid White Trash.

  • white garbage!!

    That’s why white trash don’t have jobs coz hard working illegals taking over their menial jobs.

    Why should employers pay white trash $8/hour for menial service when they have a reading level lower than the 1st grade or similar reading levels are illegals?? When illegals make $2/hour & no health insurance benefits & no 401k plans.

    LoL @ white trash.

  • illiterate white trash

    illiterate white trash. how sad. no wonder they kept complaining about losing minimum wage jobs to illegals. their racism is a result in loss of job & hatred. stupid white trash.

  • Exterminate the ignorant race

    Hope GOD returns to earth and exterminate the ignorant whites.

  • Mr.BarrackObama(Official)

    I am a suprise visitor for the cbs2 website today.
    By reading the first post, I believe that our nation needs change.Yes, Illegals are more over critized by the Republicans. The topic states that a man was hit in the freeway,and then someone talks about illegals. Just keep it on,and think Yes We Can.

  • arizona joe


  • elber gudo

    yea deport him to africa or europe
    now what

  • tuscon slim

    if i was you ronald hill…..i would go to the cops an say someone stole my ID. before you get charged with inpersonating a illegal alien.

  • so what!!

    lol at illegals. Fighting tooth and nails on this one..

  • george

    sounds like an afro-american homeless person , because the area where the accident took place is next to south cental l.a. where the major riots took place.

  • Sad!

    How sad. I can only hope he didn’t have the time to experience the fear of multiple vehicles approaching him at high speeds. I’m so sorry for his family and friends. I hope we can come to understand why he crossed the busy roadway so we can make moves to prevent such actions in the future.

    • Jeanee


      thank you for your comment he was from LA and he was not homeless and he leaves behind a mother kids and a host of family and friends who do and still care for him.

      • Tammi

        You are absolutely right, this is our family member, nephew to be exact. And, we don’t know why he was on the freeway. He could have been beaten or running for his life. and by the way, he is a Black man. But what does it matter? A life is a life. So now all you readers get this. He is Black. He is a father. He is a son. He is an uncle. He is a brother. He is not illegal, born and raised right here in the L.A area.

  • vince

    Illegals are now stealing id’s as demonstrated by this case. Time for us to start picking off people at the border one by one. I will gladly go to the border and start takin em out and doing us and my country a hugh service


    if i had stop,i would have been late to work and lose my job to an illegal mexicans. afterall, i cant run for the border like they do.
