What was a man doing walking across the 405 Freeway in West LA late Saturday night? Unfortunately, he died when he was struck by a Nissan Altima around 12:45 a.m. "The pedestrian also caused 'seven or eight cars' to crash and that four lanes of the freeway in the immediate area were blocked for about two hours. None of the motorists sustained serious injuries," the CHP relayed to the LA Times.
