Channel 4 is reporting this took place on the south end of 270. Which of course makes more sense because 71 is east of 62 on the south side and those exits immediately follow one another. While on the north east side, 71 is west of 62 and there are 2 exits between them.

the body was on just past the grove city exit on the south bound side of 270
Truck drivers were saying there was a man running into traffic laying down on the road apparently trying to commit suicide

I think someone needs a new map that shows what direction they are going AND/or writing about. This has nothing to do with the NorthEast side of Columbus. Also, does anyone proof read BEFORE posting at WBNS??

i saw that guy on the freeway heading to work at 3:10 and pass by him 3:20 on the 62 heading to alum creek for work. it was kinda scary cause i was driving 65 and i couldn't see him til like about 20 ft away. all i saw was that he was wearing a white shirt and that he was white guy. On that freeway its really dark. i feel really bad cause what if i was the last guy that saw him before someone hit him and i could have stopped and told him get off the highway. i would have called the police and told them there was a crazy guy walking in the freeway but i didn't have a phone.

who ever is talking shit about this guy shouldn't be talking like that. what if he had a problem with family or what ever but it doesn't mean u can talk shit or say something like that. people theses days are really rude and think about nothing but themselves and if they got nothing to talk about they talk shit to anyone.

I just don't understand why people travel by walking on a highway, too dangerous to me. I almost hit someone at night on a curve of a road and they were wearing all black. He was on the road too. I think no one should be walking at night work or not it just too dangerous and anyone can get hit like this guy who got killed because of it. Be smart call someone to pick you up to take you to work or use some kind of transportation at night it is the smart way, you get paid you have money. I rather be safe then sorry.

For the same reason birds fly south. It's too far to walk.

To all of the idiots with their stupid comments... I really hope that when you lose someone in your life... that someone is there with the same compassion you share here. You know none of the details or the reason that caused him to be there at that time.

My son just heard a classmate of his was hit and killed this morning. It is sad to think the person hit on the freeway may be him. My thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family.

Do any of you realize that this person does have a family and you could at least show some respect that they just lost of loved one? But no you would rather sit here and say rude things. What if this was your family and you see everyone on here saying all this? But since it’s not who cares right??? Some people now days are just heartless.

It looks as though I've caught an idiot... One that can't read and is motorcycle and helmet obessed... it's one thing to die doing what you believe in... the facts were all there... this kid was hit...only he knew why he was there... maybe he had no choice... like I said to the idiots jugding this there are no details therefore... keep your stupid comments to yourself... So reply all you want... stupidity has no bounds and flows freely and apparently quite often... I said my peace and am out.

no matter what the truth is we will never know but to the family of the young man i am sorry for your loss dont let the comments of the ignorant selfcentered people bring you down in any way.we still lost a person today and that should be the main concern not the fact that he may have been on drugs, alchol or just crazy. rip to him.
