The CHP said the man’s injuries were “traumatic” as parts of his body laid across two lanes of traffic after being struck by a 2016 Honda and a 2016 Chrysler.
The drivers stopped on the right shoulder following the collision and officers said the man was wearing dark clothing, making it difficult for the drivers to see him.
