NBC4 reports this morning that a Hispanic woman "allegedly" running south in the northbound lanes of the 605 Freeway was struck and killed by an off-duty police officer.Although not categorized as a suicide, LAist can't help but wonder who exactly would choose to end their life purposely, let alone on the 605 Freeway -- a less than stellar way to go. I mean, sure -- the 405 or the 10, but the 605?

Then again, those who believe that no sane person would ever run head-on into speeding freeway traffic might hypothesize that there's something even more sinister going on here. That in fact, referenced Hispanic woman was not running into something, but away from something. That she was being chased, while hiding a certain top-secret microfilm in her pocket, that would free the country from the controlling government and their allies.

In the end, it just may be one of those weird LA things that happens on the freeway early in the morning. Crazy people acting crazy.
