On Aug. 1, at approximately 8:44 p.m., CHP’s Los Angeles Communications Center began receiving a series of 911 calls reporting a vehicle verses object and also pedestrian on the ground in the northbound No. 1 and 2 lanes of Interstate 5. However, the callers provided several different locations.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department also received 911 calls. Units from CHP, LASD and Los Angeles County Fire Department began to look for the pedestrian.
At approximately 8:56 p.m., CHP Newhall Area Sergeant Reyes located a deceased pedestrian on northbound I-5 just north of the lower crossover, which is in an unincorporated area of Castaic.
The pedestrian was deceased and initial information indicates that the pedestrian had been struck by several vehicles. One of the vehicles which struck the pedestrian remained at the scene, and the driver reported the collision via 911. No other vehicle stopped at the scene.
All of the northbound lanes were briefly closed and at 2108 hours the northbound No. 4 lane was opened. The northbound No. 1, 2, and 3 lanes are closed for the investigation. ENTAC received notification through LACC at approximately 9:50 p.m. The collision received local media attention.

James Tammy Slinkard this could be why you hits so much traffic!! ?
Oh my lord. So was it an accident?! Too weird
Ed Halterman wtf
Never mind I read it and it said not due to a traffic collision
So was the body dumped?! This kind of sh** freaks me out!
Hit by a car & the car did stop..
wow very sad
“Officers were still investigating the report, but it did not appear as though the death was not associated with a traffic collision.”
Hmm…Hooray for clarity of writing?! Could this be any more vague? What a horribly written sentence! (Sorry to say!)
So it says it is a traffic death.
Cheryl Byrd VanDenberg it did not appear that it wasn’t lol
Omg read what it says! It does not appear to be from a traffic collision! Lol
Sarah Kendig but it doesn’t say that
It obviously was a typo lol
If u click the link it states it better
Sarah Kendig regardless, it’s poor writing
Yes I agree
Sarah Kendig I did click the link which is where I got the sentence I posted above. ?
But to any normal person u could clearly see it’s a typo
There was another link posted

Jesus! Luckily we were already in bed.
Hopefully it was a tweaked.
One can hope
Not sure why it’s being reported this way. CHP took the call as a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. This story makes it sound as though a dead body just appeared on the freeway.
It appeared out of thin air
The call came out as vehicle vs unknown object
An x files mystery
Daisy Anguiano explains it all
Sensationalizing a horrible situation? For clicks, huh? Sad. Prayers to the victim’s family and the poor soul who was behind the wheel.
Must be more to the story.. cop chops scanning the neighbourhood.. still. 10:40pm
U can see the body and stuff from old rd north of Jack n box
Isabel Garcia Polanco
Actually bodies have been getting dumped over there for years. I remember it happening when I was a kid.
From what i hurd there were parts of him across the area closed… so sad. I left work ( in castaic) at 11pm. I can only imagine that the traffic is still a nightmare. Are corners on scene yet??
Maggie Irwin Bosch this is why there was traffic
Well I know it’s not me. Phew (I know I know sick humor. Sorry )
German Hernandez German Hernandez took me two hours to get home // dos horas para llegar.
Saw this in person and it’s an image that I will never get to unsee ? I continued driving up the old rd to get an idea of just how bad traffic was going to be and realized that they had completely stopped it so I pulled over on the side along with a bunch of other people… You could see the body from the side of the road on the way to double c. Took me a little bit to figure out what I was looking at and it immediately made me sick to my stomach. Rip to that poor man ? I just can’t understand why he was on the freeway in the first place.
Struck by several vehicle but only one stopped?! ?
My thoughts exactly!!!!
AHAH! Thank u
