The body of a man was found Tuesday morning along the Foothill (210) Freeway in Pasadena.
The discovery was made at 5:25 a.m. along the westbound Foothill Freeway near the transition road where the Foothill Freeway branches off into the westbound Ventura (134) Freeway, said California Highway Patrol Officer Tony Polizzi. The location was under the Fair Oaks Avenue over crossing.
Responding CHP officers found the man lying face down on the right shoulder, and Pasadena Fire Department paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene, according to CHP Officer R. Pope.
The coroner’s office reported the man was believed to be in 50s or 60s.
His death remains under investigation.
The agency issued a Sigalert shutting down the roadway at the southbound Fair Oaks Avenue off-ramp. All lanes were reopened at about 7:50 a.m.
