BERKELEY, Calif. —
Berkeley police were searching for a driver who fatally struck a man early Monday on the heavily traveled University Ave. overpass to Highway 80, authorities said.
Berkeley police spokeswoman Jennifer Coats said a man’s body was found by a patrol officer around 5:10 a.m. on the overpass.
“The officer found the man in the roadway and immediately called for medical assistance,” she told KTVU. “Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead at the scene. “
Coats said homicide and traffic investigators were on the scene, searching for any clues as to how the man was killed.
“We do have indications that this was a hit and run,” she said.
Coats said eastbound lanes of University Ave. off Highway 80 were open but that commuters cannot enter the freeway from University.
The busy freeway entrance ramp reopened at around 10:40 a.m.
Anyone with information about the accident was asked to call the Berkeley Police.
