Active Duty Marine Killed by Car While Lying on Freeway Identified
By Cassia Pollock and Samantha Tatro

An active duty Marine fatally struck by a car while lying on the freeway last Sunday has been identified by the San Diego County Medical Examiner.
Grant Weidman, a 28-year-old Marine based in Camp Pendleton, was seen lying across the number one lane of westbound Interstate 8 in the College Area of San Diego at about 3:21 a.m. before he was killed, according to the Medical Examiner's office.

A woman driving a sedan was unable to stop her vehicle in time to prevent hitting the man, said Medical Examiner officials. After the collision, she called 911 and his death was declared when first responders arrived at the scene.
At least two cars struck the man, and one driver left the scene, California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers said.

CHP officers are not sure why the man was in the freeway to begin with, as there is no reason to believe his car was broken down. No car belonging to the marine was found in the area.
An ongoing investigation is underway. Officers are asking anyone who may have witnessed the collision without realizing it to come forward with information.
