The identity of a pedestrian who was hit by three cars early this morning on southbound Interstate 680 still isn't known.
The Alameda County Coroner's Office is working on an identification.
According to California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Creel, the victim did not have any identification on him.
"The CHP received a call at about 3:32 a.m. about a pedestrian being struck on the freeway," said Creel. "The man was hit somewhere in the number two to number three lanes of southbound I-680 by three vehicles- two Toyota Corollas and a Ford pick-up."
Creel says traffic on southbound I-680 between I-580 and Stoneridge Drive was diverted briefly through the center divide. The freeway was then shut down completely to clear the collision and removed the victim.
"A unit had passed by that stretch of the freeway about 15 to 20 minutes before the collision was reported and did not see any pedestrian," commented Creel. "We usually get calls if there is someone walking on the freeway and we had not gotten any prior to this collision."
Creel says the man likely came from either Stoneridge Drive or I-580. According to Creel, there were no disabled vehicles in the area to link to the victim.
