Pedestrian fatally injured on I-80 in Sacramento identified as Lincoln man

A pedestrian who reportedly died after he was struck by vehicles on Interstate 80 in Sacramento early Monday has been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office as 35-year-old Matthew Isaiah Lamb of Lincoln.

The impact occurred about 1:48 a.m. on eastbound Interstate 80, east of Norwood Avenue. Bee Vue, 40, was driving a 1998 Honda Civic eastbound in the right lane when Lamb walked into the lane from the right shoulder, directly in front of the Honda, according to a California Highway Patrol news release. The Honda struck Lamb, causing him to be thrown into the next lane of I-80, directly in front of a 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by Larry Cook Jr., 44, of Phoenix.

Lamb was pronounced dead at the scene.

Vue and Cook stopped immediately after striking Lamb. Vue was taken to Mercy San Juan Medical Center with minor injuries, according to the CHP.

After an evaluation, it was determined that neither Vue nor Cook was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time, CHP officials said. They said it is not known whether Lamb was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
