The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol responded to a report of a suicidal man walking on Highway 126 near Atmore Road, Monday.
The man, reportedly a 47-year-old Fillmore resident, is said to have walked into the westbound lane of traffic shortly after 6 p.m. holding his arms in the air before being struck by a compact vehicle. The sheriff’s department is treating the investigation as a possible suicide rather than traffic related.
