SAN JOSE — A 20-year-old Milpitas man was killed when two cars collided with him on northbound Interstate Highway 280 in San Jose Saturday night, California Highway Patrol officers said.

Officers responded at 11:10 p.m. to reports of a pedestrian in the roadway in the northbound lanes of Highway 280, north of U.S. Highway 101, CHP officers said.

Medical personnel found Daniel Nhan dead in a northbound lane.

Two cars, a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe and a 2003 Honda Accord, were stopped on the shoulder just north of the scene, according to CHP.
