A pedestrian died after being hit when he jumped in front of an oncoming vehicle on the Route 210 Freeway in San Bernardino on Dec. 9, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At about 4:02 p.m., the unidentified male pedestrian was walking on the right shoulder of the freeway eastbound, east of Arden Avenue. At the same time, a 54-year-old Florida man was driving a 2021 International truck tractor semi-trailer.

It is unknown why the pedestrian jumped in front of the vehicle, the CHP said. The identity of the deceased is being withheld pending identification and notification of next of kin by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner’s Office.

Anyone with information regarding this collision is encouraged to contact Officer J. Duran at the San Bernardino CHP Office at (909) 383-4247.
