One man is dead following an accident Tuesday night on the Northway.
State police in Wilton say the fatal collision between a tractor-trailer and a pedestrian occurred at about 7:30 p.m. in the southbound lanes between exits 16 and 15, near the Jones Road overpass.
The victim, 64-year-old Lawrence D. Sampson of Halfmoon, was hit by a truck driven by 31-year-old Chad A. Clark of Philo, Ohio.
State police say witnesses and evidence at the scene indicate Sampson was outside his vehicle on the right shoulder and jumped out in front of the truck as it passed. They believe the victim committed suicide. No charges are pending against the truck driver.
