Pedestrian struck, killed on SR-163 in Hillcrest

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man was struck and killed on State Route 163 in the Hillcrest area Tuesday after he crossed into the path of traffic on foot or jumped onto the freeway from an overpass.

Several vehicles hit the pedestrian on the southbound side of the freeway at Washington Street shortly before 2:30 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Authorities closed the southbound side of the freeway along with its southbound onramp from the adjacent street to allow access for investigators and emergency vehicles. The closure led to extra-heavy Christmas Eve congestion in the busy corridor between Mission Valley and downtown San Diego.

The victim's identity was not immediately available.
