SF man struck, killed on Highway 280

A 59-year-old San Francisco man was struck and killed Tuesday morning while he was standing outside his 1996 Toyota Tacoma on northbound Interstate Highway 280 near Ocean Avenue.

The man got out of the truck in the fast lane around 2:30 a.m. because he had hit a bean bag chair that made his tires lock and then spin out of control, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Reports indicated a 41-year-old Daly City man was driving another Tacoma — this one a 2006 model — around 65 mph in the lane next to the man and had just swerved to the right then back into the No. 2 lane, trying to avoid a box.

The driver then saw the man standing at the back of his truck, slammed on the brakes, but was not able to stop in time, according to the CHP. Police say they do not believe alcohol was a factor.

The crash blocked the entire northbound side of the freeway until about 4:45 a.m.
