A pedestrian was killed Tuesday evening on U.S. Highway 101 South in San Francisco, California Highway Patrol said.  

CHP has limited information and is still investigating, but around 7 p.m., a person was struck on the highway north of the Grand Avenue offramp by more than one vehicle and was killed. 

The pedestrian is described as a Hispanic man, probably between the ages of 30 and 40, and possibly transient.

Most lanes of 101 South remained closed as of 8:15 p.m., though the slow lane has re-opened, CHP said. First responders are waiting for the coroner to arrive. 

Highway patrol will release more information as it becomes available.
