Around 7:25 p.m., a person ran from the right shoulder across all lanes of northbound Highway 101 near the Maple Street overcrossing, according to CHP.
A car was in the second lane and braked in an attempt to swerve to the right to avoid the person, but wasn’t able to fully change lanes because another car was in its way. The car hit the pedestrian with the front left of the vehicle.
The pedestrian was taken to the hospital with major injuries and their current condition is not known, according to CHP.
