A man was killed after being ejected during a multi-vehicle crash Friday on the San Diego (405) Freeway.
Officers from the California Highway Patrol were called at 2:11 a.m. to the southbound 405 Freeway and the Santa Monica Boulevard off ramp where they found the victim on the freeway after the collision, a CHP spokesman told City News Service.
Witnesses told officers that one vehicle struck the center divider and the victim was struck by at least one vehicle after being ejected.
The man, in his 20s, died at the scene, according to the CHP and the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. Authorities withheld his name, pending notification of his relatives.
The collision closed all lanes of the southbound freeway for several hours while the CHP conducted its investigation of the crash.
