The crash was reported on the Highway 4 Bypass just east of Lone Tree Way about 5 a.m., CHP Officer Eric Anderson said.

The Bypass was shut down in north- and southbound directions until 12:14 p.m. while Brentwood police conducted an investigation.

The victim’s name was not being released pending notification of next of kin.

    A pedestrian walking alongside the road at 5 in the morning?

    Maybe we need a pedestrian lane. I vote for 8 years of roadwork and bickering over funds to stripe a 2 mile stretch of road. The only thing “Bypass Road” is bypassing is the, now wide open, unconguested hywy 4/main street. My condolences to the victims family and God Bless the Bypass Authority.
