A man walked onto I-93 southbound at South Bay around 1 a.m., and popped into the high-speed lane - where he was promptly struck and killed by a Mercedes, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. The man, 38, from Boston, did not survive.
The driver, a 47-year-old man from Brockton, stayed at the scene, the DA's office says:
The operator remained at the scene, called 911, did not show any signs of impairment, and gave an interview with investigators in which he made statements corroborated by at least one witness that the pedestrian appeared suddenly in the roadway. A reconstruction of the crash is under way to determine whether speed was a factor, but there are no charges at this time.
