At 4:28AM the unidentified man wearing dark clothing walked into the southbound lanes of the freeway a little north of Knighton Road. He was struck by a Kia Sol in the slow lane driven by 63-year-old Mark Cook of Redding. Cook said he slammed on his brakes but couldn’t avoid the collision. He immediately pulled over and called 9-1-1.
