Man Fatally Hit While Walking Across 10 Freeway

POMONA (CBS) — A man in his 20s was killed early Tuesday morning when he was struck by at least two vehicles on the eastbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway in Pomona, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The pedestrian was fatally injured west of North Dudley Street at 4:21 a.m., CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos said. His name was withheld, pending notification of relatives.

It was unclear why the man was on the freeway, Villalobos said. Several vehicles stopped at the scene, and officers interviewed the motorists, he said. A SigAlert was issued for the No. 3 and 4 lanes for four or five hours while an investigation was conducted.

    To “His Brother” Good for you, and to all the peoople with negative comments please take them someplace else because peple are grieving such a horrible accident! Such an awful thing to happen to someone so young.
    People make not smart choices or just need to get to somewhere and fight their own evils. But people need to remember he is a person he has family and friends who are grieving his loss. Here is a question for all you negative people what if it happened to someone you love are you going to say oh well they had it coming to them or you dont feel sorry for them? I think not! :( it’s sad, he was def too young. Rip justin and prayers to his family we arent here to judge it’s not our job.
