Pedestrian hit and killed on South Street offramp in Cerritos

HMG-LCCN  has confirmed with Cerritos sheriffs that a pedestrian was hit and killed on the South Street offramp of the 605 North Freeway.

Reports are that the 605  is closed as is all the off-ramps in the area.

  • Jas says:

    A man was struck and killed trying to run across the southbound 605 Freeway in Cerritos today.

    The fatal crash near South Street was reported at 6:17 p.m., said California Highway Patrol Officer Stephan Brandt.

    The man died at the scene, Brandt said. His name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.

    The CHP closed the southbound 2, 3, 4 and 5 lanes for the investigation, Brandt said.

    It was not known why the man was running across the freeway.

    ***Sidebar. seems like a burglary in the parking lot of Robinsons, decades ago, ended in freeway death, when LCM parking lot burglars ran across the 605. Vaguely remember parts of this story from 1970’s-1980’s.
