A person was hit by a car and killed early Sunday while crossing the 110 Freeway on foot, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The collision happened around 4:30 a.m. on the southbound lanes of the highway, north of Century Boulevard.

CHP officers arrived to find the male victim in the road. The car, a 2000 Toyota, was on the right shoulder of the highway. Its driver, a 36-year-old Los Angeles man, was not injured.

In footage captured after the incident by LLN videographer Scott Lane, a man who appears to be the driver says he was trying to avoid hitting two people who were running across the highway. He wasn't sure where the second person had gone.

"He kept running," the man told Lane.

The collision is under investigation. The CHP said alcohol is not suspected as a cause and the driver was not arrested.
