Last Thursday morning, August 13, anyone driving up northbound I-15 trying to get on SR 52 found a middle-aged man assaulting vehicles and stopping traffic. The man was screaming that he had been assaulted and ran back and forth across the connector, pounding on vehicles and screaming at drivers.
A good-hearted Samaritan on his way to work stopped to try to get the man to safety but failed. Traffic backed up for miles. Six CHP units responded to the incident, located the man, and were able to clear the connector.
The man said there was an invisible dog and man with a knife after him. There were no weapons found, only a hat that the man had been waving around. Everything was brought back to normal, but traffic backed up for hours afterward.
