Early this morning, Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020, at approximately 1:16 am, CHP Contra Costa responded to a call of a vehicle versus a pedestrian on the Loveridge Road off-ramp from Hwy-4 eastbound in Pittsburg. Upon CHP & emergency personnel arrival, a 33-year-old male (unknown city of residence but possibly a transient or homeless individual) was located within the roadway and the responsible vehicle that collided with the pedestrian remained on scene.
Unfortunately, the male pedestrian was pronounced deceased on scene. The solo male driver of the 2013 Honda (36yrs old from Livermore) remained on scene and was cooperative throughout the investigation. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Coroner’s Office will be handling the release of identity of the deceased male pedestrian.
Our initial investigation of this incident revealed that the pedestrian was within the roadway of the Loveridge road off-ramp in the #2 lane while the Honda was exiting from Hwy-4.

The driver of the Honda was not DUI or impaired. Impairment of the pedestrian due to alcohol or drugs is unknown, at this time.
