A pedestrian died after being struck by a vehicle on the Interstate 215 Freeway on May 20, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At about 5:38 a.m., a 29-year-old San Bernardino man was sprinting across traffic lanes of I-215 northbound, south of Little League Drive, the CHP said.

A 59-year-old man from Eugene, Oregon was driving a 2016 White Freightliner and traveling in the No. 2 lane of the freeway at an unknown speed. As the driver continued northbound, the front of the Freightliner collided with the pedestrian.
