Authorities are investigating the death of an unidentified man whose body was found in the fast lane of the 110 Freeway in San Pedro early Monday.

The initial reports of the body on the southbound Harbor Freeway came in just before midnight Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol, CNS reports. Emergency responders pronounced the man dead minutes later on scene.

The CHP say the victim is a white male in his mid-20s, and identification is pending. An autopsy is scheduled for this week.

It is not known how or why the man was on foot on the freeway. CHP Officer Ed Jacobs told L.A. Now the body was likely struck "several times," and two of those drivers stopped after hitting him.
