A deadly pedestrian accident shut down a portion of Interstate 5 near the Coronado Bridge last night. Police say the pedestrian was struck by at least three cars while reportedly trying to run across the freeway around 7:30pm.
The interstate was shutdown for several hours while investigators worked the scene. Police have not yet confirmed whether the victim was a man or a woman. One of the driver involved in the accident was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
Unfortunately San Diego pedestrian accidents like last night’s incident are all too common in this region. Pedestrian accidents can happen on any road and at any time of day and night.
