Man struck, killed on I-93 in Boston, officials say

A 38-year old man who apparently walked into the left-hand travel lane on Interstate 93 South near the South Bay Mall in Dorchester was struck and killed early today by a passing car, officials said.

The operator of the 2009 Mercedes Benz, a 47-year-old Brockton man, stayed at the crash scene about 1 a.m. to talk to investigators, and police said he did not appear impaired, officials said.

The driver told police that the pedestrian suddenly appeared in the roadway. The driver’s statements were supported by one witness, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.

Authorities said the victim was a Boston resident, but his name was not released.

No charges have been filed, and authorities said an investigation is underway by the State Police crash reconstruction unit, which is looking at speeding as a possible factor, said Conley spokesman Jake Wark.
