The accident happened around 2:10 am in the eastbound lanes of the 91 Freeway near Spruce Street. A man crashed into the center divider for an unknown reason, then exited his vehicle and stood on the east side of his car. His wrecked car was then struck by a second vehicle which was unable to stop, and the impact pushed the wrecked car into the man standing on the freeway. A third vehicle then came upon the crash and was able to avoid the wrecked cars, but ran over the man lying in the road.
The pedestrian was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. Initial reports indicate he may have been run over by several other vehicles as well. The woman in the second vehicle sustained moderate injuries, but was able to escape her wrecked car before it caught on fire. The accident remains under active investigation at this time.
