SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities released the name Friday of a Los Angeles man struck and killed by a pickup truck last week while trying to cross a northern San Diego County freeway on foot.

Christopher Jantz, 26, attempted to run across the westbound lanes of State Route 78 about 12:30 a.m. Friday after crashing his eastbound Scion TC coupe at high speed near Civic Center Drive in Vista, according to the county Medical Examiner's Office and California Highway Patrol.

Before Jantz could reach the shoulder of the roadway, a Chevrolet 1500 pickup struck him, killing him at the scene, the CHP reported.
