A pedestrian was hit by multiple cars and killed on northbound Interstate 5 at state Route 15 in National City early Thursday, causing traffic backup in the area during the morning commute.

The California Highway Patrol reported that a pedestrian had been hit in the fast lane of the freeway at around 4:50 a.m. About 20 minutes later, officials shut down three of the four lanes along north I-5, just north of 8th Street.

Traffic was moving, but slowly, through the one open lane. By 8:15 a.m., all lanes reopened and traffic moved at its normal pace.

The CHP has not yet released details on the pedestrian's death.
