That missing Pennsylvania student we told you about apparently is the same person who was fatally struck on the 405 freeway near Getty Center Drive over the weekend, ABC7 reported Monday afternoon.
Twenty-year-old James Daniel O'Connell, a.k.a. Jamie, was last seen at a Bel Air graduation party about 2 a.m. Saturday, according to Los Angeles police. Bloodhounds tracked a scent from Sunset Boulevard south on Sepulveda Boulevard, but no other evidence about the man was found.
Channel 7 reports that the man killed in traffic was identified as O'Connel.
The man's family hired a private detective and went on a door-to-door search for him over the weekend.
