The accident happened around 5:45 a.m. south of Jamboree Road, California Highway Patrol Officer Anselmo Templado said.

The man, who was driving a Nissan 350Z, landed across the highway after losing control, Templado said. He pulled into the far right lane where he was hit by the SUV on the driver’s side.

The two vehicles blocked the freeway’s two right-hand lanes, which were closed for about two hours, Templado said.
