Homeless Man Struck on Highway 101

CHP has identified the man hit while crossing Hwy 101 Tuesday night.

A homeless man was killed Tuesday night while attempting to cross the 101 freeway. The transient was struck first by a white 1989 Toyota Camry as he attempted to run across the northbound 101 freeway from the right shoulder toward the center divider. He was then hit by up to three other vehicles.

The driver of the Toyota, 23-year-old Yolanda Sertero Julian of Goleta, believed her car had been hit by an object thrown from the La Cumbre overpass. She sustained an eye injury from the broken windshield and was later treated at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. CHP officials do not consider Julian a hit-and-run suspect.

The pedestrian, a white 54-year-old homeless man, was identified and is suspected to have been under the influence of alcohol. Investigators will not release his identity until his next of kin can be found and notified of his death.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
