    A fatal collision closed a part of U.S. Highway 101 in South San Francisco on Sunday, July 26, 2015.

    A man was fatally struck by a vehicle on U.S. Highway 101 after getting out of his vehicle near South San Francisco on Sunday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    At about 5:20 a.m., CHP officers received a report of a pedestrian lying in Lane 1 on northbound Highway 101, south of Oyster Point Boulevard.

    CHP officers also said that a car, stopped on the southbound side, was blocking Lane 1.

    Responding officers reached the scene at 5:22 a.m. but the person was struck by two cars prior to their arrival, according to the CHP.

    The victim has been identified only as a resident of San Mateo County in his late 30s, according to the CHP. His name has not yet been released, and his city of residence is still in question.

    Having sustained fatal injuries, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene, the CHP said.
