SAN DIEGO, CA (November 2, 2021) – Authorities said a man died Wednesday morning after a vehicle and pedestrian accident on Interstate 5.

The incident occurred around 6:00 a.m. on October 27, on southbound Interstate 5 near eastbound state Route 94.

According to the CHP, the 20-year-old Las Vegas man had just gotten out of a car he had been traveling in and was walking on the ramp when the vehicle struck him.
