The collision took place about 9:20 p.m. on the eastbound 60 Freeway, just east of Brea Canyon Road, Officer A. Khan of the California Highway Patrol’s Baldwin Park-area office said in a written statement.

“(Officers) received a broadcast of a pedestrian seen running in lanes,” he said.

Meanwhile, 1989 Chevrolet Silverado and a 2008 Mazda 6 approached the area, officials said.

“For unknown reasons, (the pedestrian) ran from the right shoulder, directly into the path of (the Silverado),” Khan said. The Mazda also struck the man following the initial impact.

“After the collision, all of the involved parties remained on scene and awaited CHP and medical personnel arrival,” Khan said. No arrest were made at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing. The identity of man killed in the collision was not released Saturday pending positive identification and notification of family by coroner’s officials.

Any witnesses, or anyone with information, can reach the CHP’s Baldwin Park-area office at 626-338-1164.
