Pedestrian killed on Interstate 8 near Morena

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8/CNS) - All westbound lanes on Interstate 8 at Taylor Street have reopened after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle Wednesday morning, according to authorities.
   
The crash on westbound I-8 at the Morena Boulevard on-ramp in the Mission Valley West area happened just after 6 a.m., according to a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. 

A fire engine and ambulance were dispatched to the scene along with law enforcement.
   
Police blocked the two right lanes of the freeway, with cones placed around what appeared to be a covered body in the far right lane near the on-ramp.
   
The crash snarled rush-hour traffic just east of where the busy freeway connects to northbound and southbound Interstate 5. The two left lanes of westbound I-8 remained open, but driving speeds were down to 3 mph approaching the crash scene, according to CalTrans, and traffic was already backed up to La Mesa.
