A man died after he was struck by a car after witness reported seeing him dart across lanes of the 10 Freeway in Redlands on Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The collision took place about 6:45 p.m. on the eastbound freeway near Orange Street, according to California Highway Patrol logs.
Witnesses reported seeing the man jump a fence on the south side of the freeway and run across lanes toward the center divider before being hit, logs show.
