A man committed suicide by walking into traffic Thursday morning.

The man, whose identity is not being released, was heading southbound on Highway 50 at the Broadway off-ramp in Placerville at 5:10 a.m., CHP Officer Ron Davenport said. He jumped in front of a car heading eastbound in the No. 1 lane. The driver “tried to turn to the right, but impacted on the left side,” Davenport said. The car stopped, blocking lanes 1 and 2 while the man laid in the middle of the two lanes.

A 2007 Honda in lane No. 2 stopped and tried to swerve around the first vehicle to avoid it, going into lane No. 1, striking the man, Davenport said. “The injuries were fatal,” Davenport said.

The man was taken to Marshall Hospital, where he was declared dead at 5:40 a.m.

    So he was heading southbound on Highway 50? And the vehicle was heading eastbound, What about westbound? Are you saying he jumped southbound? But even then from Broadway off-ramp he would have to jump northbound to get on the freeway... HWY 50 South?
