First of all, you gotta help yourself (not get killed). Awful.

Freeways are exceptionally dangerous places to be on foot. Witness the number of CHP officers injured and killed on our freeways and one gets the idea. Crossing a freeway, no matter what the reason, is insanity. I feel terrible for this man's family especially because he was trying to help. Please people, remember this when tempted to stop and enter a freeway. It's just no worth it.
