Man Hit and Killed by Several Cars on 5 Freeway

SYLMAR, Los Angeles County (August 10, 2017) – A man was killed after being struck by several vehicles on the Interstate 5 Freeway Wednesday afternoon, according to KTLA.

Initial investigation revealed the man was first traveling on the southbound of the freeway near Roxford Street when for an unknown reason he exited his vehicle and stepped onto the rush hour traffic.

Several vehicles were not able to stop on time, and subsequently hit the man.

Sylmar Fatal Accident

As per the article, the man was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 5:00 p.m. California Highway Patrol group mentioned the body was located in the sixth lane, while body parts were scattered across other lanes.

Authorities said they are still investigating why the man exited his vehicle.

Further, it was not immediately clear how many vehicles struck the man, and if all the involved stopped at the scene.


We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of the deceased as they search for peace and comfort.

Based on this news report, it remained unclear who is responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of the man who exited his vehicle. There are still several unanswered factors at this time—did the man use proper warning methods and devices before stepping out the traffic? Who was the first driver to hit the man? Did all the vehicles who struck the man stopped and stayed at the scene? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred in this tragic accident.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
