At about 6 a.m., Matthew Eugene Gunn, 47, was lying on West Pozo Road near Las Pilitas Road while there was heavy fog in the area. A driver from Templeton struck and killed the man, then a Santa Margarita resident who was driving in the opposite lane also hit the man’s body.

It is unclear why he was lying on the road.
