SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Mateo County coroner’s office has identified the man who died early Sunday morning on U.S. Highway 101 in South San Francisco as 39-year-old Cyril Begadon.

The incident was first reported Sunday at 5:20 a.m. regarding a car, a black Honda, was stalled in a northbound lane, according to CHP officer Dan Russo.

Begadon, 39, of South San Francisco, was struck by three vehicles at approximately on Highway 101 south of Oyster Point Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Begadon’s car was parked on the southbound side of the highway where he got out of his car yet it’s still unclear as to how his body ended up on the northbound of the highway CHP officials said.

Investigators did not know Sunday whether Begadon climbed over the guardrail to the highway’s northbound side or if a collision propelled him onto that side, according to the CHP.

Begadon was pronounced dead at the scene, added Russo, and it is unclear if alcohol played a role in the accident.

CHP officials said Sunday at this time there have been no arrests made to the accident.

A CHP spokesman could not be immediately reached this morning for more information about the collision.
