Earlier this week, two separate highway accidents in eastern Massachusetts killed pedestrians, report state police. The first pedestrian accident occurred around 7:30pm Tuesday evening when a 46-year-old Salisbury man stepped into the right lane on Route 95 South in Newbury. He was hit by a car and fatally injured.
On Wednesday, the second pedestrian fatality occurred on Woburn Street in Wilmington when an unidentified man was hit by a commercial vehicle. Police believe the man may have jumped from an overpass before the vehicle hit him.
Authorities are still investigating the fatal accidents.
