SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle while on Interstate 5 late Sunday.

The pedestrian was on southbound I-5, just north of Cesar E Chavez Parkway, just before 11 p.m. when a vehicle struck and killed the person, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Several vehicles hit the person after the initial crash, CHP added.

CHP said it's unclear why the person was on the freeway and whether drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.

I-5 was closed between Cesar Chavez Parkway and Logan Avenue while CHP investigators responded.

The collision was under investigation as of Monday.
