RICHMOND (CBS SF) – A pedestrian was struck and killed in a hit-and-run in East Richmond Tuesday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A male pedestrian was standing in the number three westbound lane of Interstate Highway 80, east of McBryde Avenue, when a white Chevrolet Malibu struck him.

    Why is there no mention as to why this guy was standing in the third lane on 80? Was there a disabled car nearby?

    His name was Ricky Mears. He hadn’t owned a car in years. He had been kicked out by his roommates and wasn’t wanted by anyone . He was just ok when sober , a rare event. What he was doing in the third lane of I – 80 we’ll never know , hell I bet Ricky didn’t even know. To him it probably made sense at the time. Possibly suicidal, probably drunk, positively not playing with a full deck. Once a productive member of society’s working class in a galaxy far, far away, now the stereo typical besotted indigent with a vacant gaze and aimless aspiration. He will be missed by few and mourned by fewer. Ironic his journey ended on a highway to everywhere…
    The tragic ( or maybe humane ) ending to an empty existence. Goodbye Ricky. Sorry things didn’t work out for you here… Via co Dios Ricky
