A man who was spotted running back and forth in the northbound lanes of Interstate 805 in National City was fatally struck by a vehicle early Monday.

A caller told the California Highway Patrol that a man ran from the center divider to the roadside near the offramp to East Plaza Boulevard about 12:15 a.m., then was running in the lanes, according to the CHP.

A CHP dispatcher said it was not immediately clear if the driver stopped following the crash.

The left northbound freeway lanes were closed after the crash but were reopened around 2 a.m., according to the CHP and Caltrans.
