A pedestrian was struck several times and killed on the northbound Interstate 15 Freeway this morning, shutting down traffic for hours.
The crash, just south of Railroad Canyon Road, was reported at 3:22 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
According to an officer at the scene, the man was hit "multiple times."
Traffic in all lanes was stopped and a SigAlert was issued, with debris scattered in at least two lanes, the CHP reported.
CHP officers were trying to get passengers vehicles off the freeway one exit before Railroad Canyon while investigators tried to work out what the man was doing on the freeway, the officer told Patch.
Big rigs were not allowed to move however, and remained stalled on the freeway, the CHP reported.
