Essential California: The devastation from Northern California's firestorms comes into grim focus

Westbound lanes of 10 Freeway reopen after pedestrian's death

The westbound lanes of the 10 Freeway in Pomona were closed for four hours late Thursday and into Friday after a pedestrian was struck and killed, the CHP reported.

The man, identified only as a white adult male of unknown age, was reported walking in the westbound lanes at 11:10 p.m., said Officer Elizabeth Kravig of the California Highway Patrol.

Minutes later, he was struck by at least one vehicle, said Kravig, and responding officers pronounced him dead on the scene. 

All westbound lanes were stopped east of Orange Grove Avenue for the investigation, and traffic was diverted off at Towne Avenue.

The eastbound lanes were unaffected, said Kravig. The westbound lanes reopened at 3:30 a.m.
