Man Killed Walking On 10 Freeway In Pomona


A man died early Tuesday morning after getting hit by at least three cars on the Eastbound 10 Freeway in Pomona, reports KTLA.

The Daily Breeze tells us that the victim, who appears to be in his early 20s, wandered out onto the highway a little before 4:20 AM. He was then struck by several vehicles.

A truck driver on the scene told police that he was driving at about 55 miles per hour, saw the body in lane number 4, but was unable to stop before hitting it, reports NBC.

This incident comes only months after other pedestrian deaths on the 10 Freeway. In March, a man in his mid-30s was on the 10 near Crenshaw Boulevard when he was struck by several cars, reports the LA Times. Then, in April, a man was hit and killed by an ambulance after exiting his vehicle following a minor accident, according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.
