(March 9, 2018) A 23-year-old North Hollywood man, Eric Martins, was killed in the early morning after he was struck by a vehicle while trying to cross the southbound side of Highway 101.

The driver of the vehicle that struck Martins immediately stopped and called the police after the collision, and said that there was nothing that he could do to avoid the accident. Police are still investigating why Mr. Martins was crossing the highway, and asks anyone with potential information about the tragic accident to come forward with information.
