SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO — A male pedestrian was hit and killed Monday morning by a motorist driving on southbound Highway 101 in South San Francisco, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A male driver was giving a friend a ride home when he hit something on 101 near Grand Avenue, according to CHP Officer Tony Montano. The driver continued to his friend’s home and then called 911, Montano said.
“The person wasn’t sure what he had hit,” Montano said.

The CHP was not given specific information about where the possible collision took place, Montano said. Officers ran traffic breaks and searched a stretch of 101 south of the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area and eventually located the pedestrian in the slow lane and partial right shoulder near Grant.
Montano said it’s unclear why the man was “wandering in the lanes of traffic.”
Lanes of southbound 101 were closed for a few hours for the investigation. All lanes were re-open by 5:30 a.m.
The collision is under investigation.
