LA JOLLA — A man stepped into the path of a moving car on a La Jolla-area freeway onramp Monday and was fatally struck.
The pedestrian was seen lying on the on-ramp from La Jolla Village Drive to southbound Interstate 5 after he was hit by a gray Mercedes-Benz sedan around 8 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. The driver stopped on the roadside.
The crash prompted authorities to shut down the freeway transition ramp and issue a SigAlert.
