COLTON: Man Killed in Pedestrian Accident on 10 Freeway at Pepper Avenue

About 6:45 a.m., CHP officers were told by witnesses that a man was walking on the freeway near the center divider “wearing only socks and walking crazy,” The man was approaching driver’s cars as they slowed down to avoid hitting him, but he kept crossing from the westbound to the eastbound sides of the freeway dodging traffic.

The Colton Police Department responded, but it appears a driver struck the man before they were able to divert traffic away from the scene. The San Bernardino County Coroner was then called to the scene as the man died of his injuries on the freeway. Two cars, a Kia and a white Honda Civic were stopped at the scene, but it’s unclear if they were involved fatal accident.

Police closed down all eastbound lanes at Pepper Avenue and diverted traffic off there so an investigation could be conducted.
