Man Walking on I-580 Hit Causing Massive Traffic Jam

Categories: Breaking News

The Friday morning commute is at a standstill in Oakland after a man was reportedly hit while walking on the freeway.

The Chron reports this morning that eastbound traffic on Interstate 580 is "backed up" after the man was hit near the Coolidge Avenue on-ramp about 6:30 a.m. According to the paper, he was seen running near the center divider before being hit.

The crash involved several cars, and at least two motorists suffered minor injuries.

All eastbound lanes were closed starting at Fruitvale Avenue for about a half-hour. Several lanes were reopened by 7:20 a.m. but traffic is still pretty bad.
