Jeffrey Oishi, 56, of Richmond, has been identified as the victim of a hit-and-run collision Sunday morning on Interstate Highway 80 near Carlson Boulevard.

The California Highway Patrol responded at 4:12 a.m. to a call about an injured man in the eastbound lanes of the highway. Officers said Oishi was suffering from major injuries. He was transported to the hospital, where he died.

CHP believes Oishi was struck by a vehicle on the highway, but none of the vehicles involved remained at the scene. It remains unclear why Oishi was on the highway. Investigators are searching for a red Honda that may have struck Oishi. The Honda has a damaged right-side bumper and is missing its right side side-view mirror, officials said.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information about the incident is asked to contact the CHP’s tip line at (800) 835-5247 or the Oakland CHP office at (510) 450-3821.
