<font size="2"><p>&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;One person was killed after being struck on a Freeway in Fresno.&nbsp; The accident happened just before 9pm on Monday night near southbound 41 and Ashlan. CHP says the victim was the passenger in a car but he jumped out while the car was moving at freeway speed. </p><p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;The body came to rest in the middle lane below the overpass. Investigators say the driver stopped after the accident. Officers received multiple calls of a body in the road and they stopped traffic at the Shaw on-ramp but allowed traffic through the right lane. They say the investigation is on-going.&nbsp; &quot;For an unknown reason a passenger in that vehicle jumped out into the roadway traveling down the freeway. That person after landing in the road was run over by a minimum of at least one car, possibly two cars,&quot; said Scot Esmay with CHP.</p><p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Investigators are working to identify the victim and find out what exactly caused him to jump out of the car. </p></font></div>
