The California Highway Patrol was called to the scene on the 10 Freeway in Pomona west of North Dudley Street at 4:21 a.m. today in response to a sighting of a body on the road. The victim, a male pedestrian thought to be in his 20s, is thought to have been struck by at least two vehicles, says the Daily News.

"Highway patrol could not confirm why the pedestrian was on the busy highway but said that [the body] has been struck several times," notes KTLA. An investigation was launched and lanes shut down this morning to determine what happened and why the man was on foot on the freeway.
