A person was found dead Friday on the Corona del Mar (73) Freeway in Newport Beach, but authorities did not say if foul play was suspected.

A motorist driving north on the freeway called police at 2:24 p.m. to report seeing a body under an overpass at MacArthur Boulevard, according to Jennifer Manzella of the Newport Beach Police Department.

The victim was male, but it was not immediately clear if the deceased was an adult or boy, Manzella said.
