August 03, 2000

LYNWOOD — A man dressed only in socks was killed Wednesday morning when he was hit by a car on the Glenn Anderson Freeway, authorities said.

The man was running in westbound freeway lanes when he was hit about 3:40 a.m., said California Highway Patrol Officer Shirley Gaines. The accident happened just west of Long Beach Boulevard, Gaines said.

Scott Carrier of the coroner's office identified the man as Wash Sanford, 47, of Carson.

It was not known why the man was on the freeway. The accident caused a major backup for several hours. All lanes were reopened at 6:41 a.m., Gaines said.
