Man killed on Interstate 280 had stolen guns: GMC stolen out of Millbrae; driver struck after trying to flee scene
January 04, 2014, 05:00 AM By Sasha Lekach Bay

A man who was struck and killed on Interstate 280 in Daly City after crashing Friday morning was in a car stolen out of Millbrae and carrying stolen guns, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The incident started around 5:30 a.m. when a two-vehicle crash was reported on northbound Interstate 280 near the John Daly Boulevard off-ramp, CHP Officer Michael Ferguson said.

A man in a GMC lost control of his vehicle and hit the center divide. A Honda Civic driven by woman then hit the stalled car, Ferguson said.

The Honda driver was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a complaint of pain. She is expected to survive her injuries, Ferguson said.

The driver of the GMC got out of the car carrying a yellow duffel bag and tried to run away and ran across northbound lanes. According to witnesses, he realized he was above city streets and then ran back to the center divide, Ferguson said.

Once back, someone who had pulled over to help tried to tell the man to stay out of the road.

The GMC driver then threw a punch at the Good Samaritan, who ducked and the driver missed him.

He then took off running and jumped over the median into a southbound lane where he was struck by a car and killed, Ferguson said. Other vehicles also hit him.

A car that struck him did not initially stop at the scene, but the CHP believes the driver did not know that a person was hit and authorities will not be pressing charges, Ferguson said.

By mid-afternoon, two drivers had contacted the CHP about possibly being involved in hitting the man.

Anyone who was driving in that area at that time is asked to contact the CHP, he said. Anyone involved is not considered a suspect and most likely not at fault.

Ferguson said the car was stolen out of Millbrae sometime Thursday night or early Friday morning.

The driver also had a small-caliber rifle and a BB gun in the car that were reported stolen overnight, Ferguson said.

The duffel bag the man had taken with him when he fled contained what appeared to be the man’s personal belongings, Ferguson said.

The man was also found with a driver’s license that said he was a 53-year-old man, however witnesses have said the man appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s, Ferguson said.

The CHP is investigating if the ID was also stolen, he said.

After the fatality, all southbound lanes were shut down and two northbound lanes closed.

The northbound lanes opened around 7:45 a.m. and one southbound lane was opened. All lanes reopened just before 11 a.m., Ferguson said.
