Big Rig Strikes, Kills Pedestrian on Northbound I-680 in Solano County

A Sig-alert has been issued and one lane is closed

A Sig-alert was issued Friday morning after a big rig hit and killed a pedestrian on northbound Interstate 680 in Fairfield in Solano County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A CHP traffic log indicates that a witness told officers that a driver of a silver Ford stopped the car and then darted into the path of a white truck with a 50-foot trailer near the Cordelia Junction. The CHP has not confirmed that information and it's unclear why the person ran onto the road.

The deadly crash around 8:15 a.m. prompted the CHP to shut down the No. 2 lane at the Gold Hill Road on-ramp. The Sig-alert was canceled around 9:45 a.m. and the lane reopened.

Further details were not immediately available.
