HAYWARD, Calif. (BCN)– A pedestrian was killed early Friday morning along northbound Interstate Highway 880 in Hayward, a California Highway Patrol spokesperson said. Officers were called at 3:24 a.m. following a report of two people in the center divider south of the A Street off-ramp.

Officers arrived and located one woman who was placed on a mental health hold, Officer Zachary Hunter said. Officers then passed a gray Ford in the gore point.

An occupant in the Ford said their vehicle hit something that jumped out in front of it. That something turned out to be a person, Hunter said. The person was pronounced dead at the scene.
