FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — The pedestrian struck and killed Saturday morning by at least one vehicle on the 168 Freeway in Fresno has been identified as a Clovis man.

The victim was identified Sunday as 23-year-old Marshall Fuller of Clovis, according to Spokesman Tony Botti of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

The collision was reported around 1:30 a.m. in the area of the 168 and Ashlan Avenue, said Spokesman Mike Salas of the California Highway Patrol.

A male pedestrian was walking in the freeway’s westbound lanes and was struck by a blue Hyundai Elantra going 60 mph in the number two-lane.

Authorities responded to the area and shut down all westbound lanes for an investigation. The Fresno County Coroner’s Office was later called to the scene when the man was declared dead.

Salas said the vicitm, identified as a 23-year-old man, was wearing dark clothing, in the rain, with little to no lighting in the area at the time of the crash.

The driver of the Elantra was unable to see the victim before taking evasive action and striking them.

Salas said it was unknown if alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash.
