Pedestrian struck and killed on 128 south in Newton

In rush hour at exit 21 by the service area. Mike Moura reports two lanes southbound and one northbound are shut for the investigation.

UPDATE: State Police report:

Preliminary investigation indicates that the victim, an 18-year-old man, was apparently crossing the highway on foot at approximately 6:30 a.m. when he was struck by a motor vehicle on the northbound side of the highway, thrown across the median into the southbound side, and struck again on that side of the highway. He was determined to be deceased at the scene. State Police are in the process of making notifications to next-of-kin. Because that process is ongoing, we will not release any further information – including the victim's name, hometown, and why he was at that location – at this time. As of this point, no charges have been filed.

Try to use google maps to map

Try to use google maps to map walking, biking, or public transit directions from anywhere (e.g. Riverside T Station) to "Honey Dew Donuts near Newton, MA". It is not possible.

He had no choice.
