1 Dead in Rancho Cucamonga Accident on 15 Freeway
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA (August 4, 2020) – Early Monday morning, a homeless man died in an auto-pedestrian crash on the 15 Freeway.
According to reports, several motorists stopped on the 15 Freeway near Foothill Boulevard and attempted to speak with the man. However, they continued driving after the man showed a box cutter or a sharp tool.
The authorities received a report of a pedestrian running in lanes with a knife at 3:33 a.m.
CHP officers tried to block the traffic before a crash happen. However, the man was hit before they could shut down the road.
The authorities revealed that the deceased pedestrian was a homeless man in his 50s. At this time, the authorities did not release his identity.
Meanwhile, the Dodge driver from Hesperia who struck the pedestrian stayed at the scene. He was also cooperative with the investigators, the authorities revealed.

While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
Common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and street corners, but even freeways as well.
