All I-5 lanes reopened after pedestrian death prompted Wednesday lane closures

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – All lanes of southbound Interstate 5 near the Coronado
Bridge were reopened early Thursday after a pedestrian was struck and killed on
the freeway, authorities said.

The pedestrian was hit while apparently attempting to run across the
freeway around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the California Highway Patrol,
which closed off the area until about 2 a.m.

A motorist who stopped at the scene was arrested on suspicion of
misdemeanor drunken driving, the agency reported on its website. It was not
immediately clear whether the driver would face charges related to the death.

The pedestrian may have been struck by multiple vehicles. The CHP said
its investigation was ongoing.
