A Wakefield man was killed in an accident on Interstate 95 in Reading Tuesday evening, and a woman was arrested on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol, State Police said. Investigators believe the 71-year-old victim was pulled over on the side of the highway when he was struck by a vehicle driven by Mary Grigoriadis, 32, of Brockton, State Police said. The victim, whose name was not released Tuesday night, was taken to Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, where he was later pronounced dead.
