Earlier this week, Massachusetts police were called to the scene of a deadly hit-and-run accident on Route I-495. The accident occurred early Monday morning near Exit 23B in Westborough, where a 40-something male pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
Police did not find a disabled vehicle near the scene of the accident, so it’s unclear why the pedestrian was on the highway. They have not released the victim’s identify and they have asked for the public’s help in investigating the hit-and-run.
Traffic along I-495 was backed up for several hours following the fatal accident; however, traffic had resumed in all lanes as of 10am that morning.
