Man killed after crashing stolen car on Interstate 280 identified
January 07, 2014, 05:00 AM By Dan McMenamin Bay

A man who was struck and killed on Interstate 280 in Daly City early Friday morning after crashing a stolen car he was driving has been identified by the San Francisco medical examiner’s office as 32-year-old Alfred Jeter.

The crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. on northbound Interstate 280 near the John Daly Boulevard off-ramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Jeter was driving a GMC that struck the center divider. A woman driving a Honda Civic then hit the stalled car, CHP Officer Michael Ferguson said.

At that point, Jeter got out of the GMC carrying a yellow duffel bag and tried to flee by running across the northbound lanes but then ran back to the center divider, Ferguson said.

Someone who pulled over to help tried to tell him to stay out of the road, prompting Jeter to allegedly throw a punch at him, Ferguson said. The punch missed and Jeter then jumped over the median into a southbound lane where he was struck by a car and killed.

Other vehicles also struck him and those drivers did not stop at the scene. By mid-afternoon Friday, two drivers had contacted the CHP to say they may have hit him but didn’t realize it until afterward, according to Ferguson. He said those people will not face charges in the case.

Ferguson said the car Jeter was driving had been stolen out of Millbrae late Thursday or early Friday. A small-caliber rifle and a BB gun, both reported stolen, were also found in the GMC, according to the CHP.

Jeter was also found with a driver’s license that identified him as a 53-year-old man. Ferguson said the CHP is investigating whether the ID was also stolen.

The driver of the Honda that initially struck the GMC was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for injuries that are not life-threatening, Ferguson said.

The death prompted the closure of north- and southbound lanes on Interstate 280 for more than five hours.
