SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 28-year-old active duty Camp Pendleton Marine who was lying in the fast lane of a College Area freeway was killed Sunday morning, when he was run over by a car that could not stop in time, according to the medical examiner's office.
The victim was hit by a Toyota Camry that was being driven by a woman on the westbound Interstate 8, just east of San Diego State University at about 3:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
