Fatality On I-5
A pedestrian has been struck and killed along I-5 in Stanislaus County. Investigators say the unknown man was walking north bound on I-5 when he was struck by a Ford Focus, driven by Billy Ashlock. After Ashlock hit the man, he swerved onto the shoulder and continued over an embankment. He came to a stop in an open field, but not before hitting a barbed wire fence. Ashlock was able to bring his vehicle back up onto the shoulder. The unknown victim died at the scene, and police are still trying to find out his identity.
