The passenger dies on crossing the 101 highway after being hit by CHP, resulting in hours of closure



A section of the 101 freeway in Encino was closed on Monday morning for more than five hours after a Uber passenger, who had climbed out of a vehicle and ran across the highway, had been hit and killed by a California Highway Patrol cruiser. The authorities received a perturbation call at about 3:30 am from an Uber driver stating that his passengers were fighting and struggling in his vehicle while driving on the westbound side of the highway near Balboa Boulevard, according to the CHP.

The unknown Uber driver told KABC he had stopped the car when his passengers started beating each other. Without his knowledge, one of his passengers got out of the car, he said.

When the CHP officials responding to the incident took a break on the western side of the freeway, another CHP vehicle headed for the scene in the eastbound lanes to assist them. This vehicle hit the passenger after jumping the middle divider and driving east on the lanes.

The authorities did not publish the name of the passenger. It is not clear what triggered the dispute in the Uber.

On White Oak Avenue, cars were driven off the highway for hours as the authorities investigated the accident. The video from the scene showed how traffic jams miles and miles during rush hour.

The highway reopened around 9:30.
