SAN DIEGO - A man running from police officers was struck and killed while trying to run across Interstate 5 in Barrio Logan.
The incident occurred Friday evening on southbound I-5 near 28th Street.
Police say they received a call regarding a possible domestic violence incident near Boston Avenue at 29th Street. While officers were in the area investigating that incident, a man started to run away. Police say the man fit the description of the suspect in the domestic violence case, so they started chasing him.
The man tried to run across I-5 but was struck by several cars. He died at the scene.
Police determined the man was not related to the initial domestic violence incident. It is unclear why he was running from officers.
Traffic on southbound I-5 was slowed for hours.
