LAKEWOOD (CBSLA.com) — Traffic on the Northbound lanes of the San Gabriel River (605) freeway came to a standstill Monday night after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle.
The collision occurred shortly after 9:30 p.m., just north of Del Amo Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.
There was no evidence of a vehicle that had stopped or stalled nearby, CHP Officer Tony Polizzi said.
The northbound lanes of the 605 freeway were stopped shortly after the incident from the Carson/Lincoln exit, resulting in traffic buildup for miles.
