CORONA – A person was killed Tuesday on Interstate 15 in Corona.
The fatality was reported about 7:45 p.m. on the southbound side of I-15 near state Route 91, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A CHP officer said he could not confirm a report that the person had fallen or jumped onto the freeway as the death was under active investigation an hour after it was reported.
The coroner’s office was notified to collect the body.
The fatality left only one southbound lane open. The transition road from the southbound lanes of the freeway to the westbound Riverside Freeway was also closed and a SigAlert was issued, according to the CHP.
