Unidentified body on 110 Freeway had been hit several times

Authorities are working to identify a body that had been run over multiple times overnight on the 110 Freeway in Wilmington.

The California Highway Patrol described the body as a 25-year-old white male that was found lying in the fast lane of the southbound 110 Freeway just north of Gaffey Street about 11:55 p.m. Sunday.

The body was hit "probably several times," said CHP Officer Ed Jacobs. Two drivers stopped after striking the body, he added.

A SigAlert was issued for about four hours early Monday while investigators worked the scene. The lanes were cleared by 4:30 a.m., Jacobs said. 

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

A Los Angeles County coroner's official said an autopsy is scheduled for later this week.
