VICTORVILLE:(VVNG.com)- San Bernardino Sheriff’s dispatch received a report of a pedestrian struck on the north bound 15 freeway at approximately 8:30 p.m., on Friday. The collision was reported to be between Palmdale Road and Roy Rogers Drive.
“I drove right past him last night. He was laying in the fast lane face down. Didn’t know that there was a human being laying there. Unrecognizable,” stated Rod Newholm.
According to a news release, the pedestrian was trying to run east across the freeway when he was first struck by the 2007 Toyota Tacoma that was traveling northbound. The pedestrian was then propelled into the #1 lane where he was subsequently hit by the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze.
