Pedestrians on the freeway is against the law. Yet I see them walking and on bikes. Just another result of homeless and lawless democrat California. We used to have it good here, always a little expensive but good.

I’m one of those homeless, and I work and pay taxes, the person who starts the fire is in need of mental help, no resources, hope none of you or your families ever experience homelessness, i

There’s a large homeless population in that area, probably on drugs or drunk and didn’t even know where he was…. when will our political “leaders” get the guts to clean this situation up? This and all the fires the homeless cause… waste of our tax dollars

Since we don’t have all the facts, allow me to be the first to jump to conclusions and blame the self-driving Tesla due to a defective battery.

I feel sorry for the driver that hit him. What was he doing on the freeway anyway? I see a disheveled, possibly stoned, dirty guy standing on the divider at Clayton and Market St. every day as I get on the freeway.

The only real question is why the pedestrian was in the roadway at all? Suicide? Too high?
We’ll likely never know.
