    California Highway Patrol officers are investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck and killed Thursday while walking on northbound Interstate 5 at Palomar Street.

    Officers were called shortly before 4 a.m. about a man running across the southbound lanes of the highway. 

    A few minutes later, officers received a report about a man being hit by a vehicle in the northbound lanes, according to a CHP sergeant at the scene.

    The driver of the Nissan Frontier involved in the collision stayed at the scene.

    One lane of I-5 was closed along with the off-ramp to Palomar Street due to the investigation.

    On Friday, the San Diego County Medical Examiner identified the man killed as 22-year-old Bryce Alan Bussell. 

    The incident was determined to be an accident, according to the ME's office.
