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.
