Coroner identifies man who died on US-101

The San Mateo County coroner’s office has identified a man who died early Sunday morning on U.S. Highway 101 in South San Francisco as 39-year-old Cyril Begadon.

Begadon, a South San Francisco resident, died after being hit by three vehicles at about 5:20 a.m. on Highway 101 south of Oyster Point Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Begadon was struck after getting out of his car, which was parked on the southbound side of the highway, CHP officials said.

Officers found Begadon’s body on the northbound side of the highway, CHP officials said.

Investigators did not know Sunday whether Begadon climbed over the guardrail to the highway’s northbound side or if a collision propelled him onto that side, according to the CHP.

CHP officials said Sunday that they had not arrested anyone in the case.

A CHP spokesman could not be immediately reached this morning for more information about the collision.
