Troopers Investigating Fatal Pedestrian Hit-and-Run in Worcester   

Shortly after 11:30 p.m. last night Troopers from the Massachusetts State Police-Holden Barracks responded a report of a pedestrian struck on Route 290 westbound west of exit 20 in Worcester. Upon arrival Troopers determined that a 27-year-old man from Worcester, Mass., had been struck by multiple vehicles. 

Preliminary investigation indicates that the victim had been struck by an unknown vehicle, possibly a tractor trailer. Evidence indicates that he was subsequently struck by other vehicles. None of the vehicles stopped. It is unclear if any of the operators knew they had struck a person. 

The victim was determined to be deceased at the scene. The crash remains under investigation by Troop C of the Massachusetts State Police with assistance from the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, State Police Crime Scene Services Section, and State Police Detective Unit for Worcester County. State Police were assisted at the scene by Worcester Fire and Police, MA Department of Transportation and the Office if the Chief Medical Examiner. 

Anyone who witnessed any part of this incident or who has information about this crash is asked to contact Trooper Couture at the Holden Barracks at 508-829-8410.
