Man hit multiple times on highway
A body found on the right-hand shoulder of southbound Interstate 280 in San Francisco early Friday morning was the victim of a hit-and-run collision, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Amilcar Rodriguez, 25, was struck around 2:10 a.m. just south of San Jose Avenue. His body had been run over multiple times before a passing driver called authorities, CHP spokesman Shawn Chase said.
It was not immediately known if Rodriguez was a resident of The City. The only ID he was carrying was issued from the consulate of El Salvador, Chase said.
Witnesses saw Rodriguez ambling in the slow lane shortly before he was struck, though it was not clear why he was on the freeway.
