Tragic Collision on Riverside Freeway Claims Life of Pedestrian in Yorba Linda

Yorba Linda, CA (April 1, 2024) – Tragedy struck early this morning on the Riverside (91) Freeway in Yorba Linda as a male pedestrian lost his life in a fatal collision. The incident occurred at approximately 12:10 a.m. on the westbound Riverside Freeway, just east of Gypsum Canyon Road, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

Witnesses reported seeing a red sedan parked on the right shoulder, followed by a male individual entering lanes 2 and 3, apparently attempting to interact with passing vehicles in an effort to get them to stop.
