A man was fatally struck by a vehicle Sunday evening when he walked into lanes on the Hollywood (170) Freeway in North Hollywood, authorities said.

It happened about 9 p.m. on the southbound side of the freeway at Burbank Boulevard, California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball said.

The 45- to 50-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene, Kimball said. His name was not immediately released.

A SigAlert shut down lanes 2, 3 and 4 of the southbound freeway lanes, he said. The HOV and number 1 lanes were open.
