Pedestrian Struck on Route 93 in Randolph
Responding troopers found the victim on the side of the road, next to the high speed lane, where he had been thrown after being struck. The victim, a 41-year-old Brockton man, was transported by ambulance to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries.
Preliminary investigation by Trooper Joseph Durning indicates that the victim was crossing the highway on foot, and had just entered the leftmost lane, when he was hit by a 1999 Volkswagen Golf driven by a 19-year-old Norton man. The driver, who was not injured, stopped at the scene. Troopers are still investigating why the pedestrian was crossing the highway.
The victim's identity is not being released at this time.
The facts and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation by Troop H of the Massachusetts State Police with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
The northbound side of Route 93 was closed at Route 28 for two hours to accommodate the rescue response and crash investigation. The highway was reopened at 6:15 a.m.
