Authorities are working to identify a pedestrian struck and killed on Interstate 95 in Stamford late Sunday.
Connecticut State Police said the collision was reported at about 8:50 p.m. on I-95 North in the area of Exit 8 where troopers had received the report about five minutes earlier of a pedestrian walking across the interstate.
State police believe the pedestrian walked across I-95 South before trying to cross the northbound lanes where he was hit by a 28-year-old New York man driving a tractor-trailer in the right lane of three. The pedestrian was taken to Stamford Hospital where he was pronounced dead, state police said.
The truck driver did not report any injuries.
State police said the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is working to confirm the victim’s identity so his next of kin can be notified.
The crash is under investigation. Witnesses have been asked to contact Trooper Carmen Quispialaya at 203-696-2500 or [email protected].
