79-year-old pedestrian killed while walking on freeway

Damn. Last week in San Jose, a 79-year-old man was struck and killed while walking in lanes of traffic on a busy freeway: San Jose man, 79, identified as person killed Friday while walking on freeway.

The victim was identified as Hyuk Joon Kim, who was spotted Friday night while walking in northbound traffic lanes on Highway 101 before being struck by a car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Not much more information than that. According to California Highway Patrol officials, there were no other cars parked on the side of the road. Kim apparently got on 101 on foot, and may have been trying to cross the highway. Whatever the case, it's terrible.
