A Massachusetts man has been killed after a Saturday morning highway pedestrian crash.

According to Massachusetts State Police, at 5:15 a.m. this morning, Massachusetts State Troopers responded to calls of a pedestrian down in the roadway of Route 495 northbound, just north of exit 36B in Plainville. The person struck was determined to be deceased.

Preliminary investigation indicates that a 41-year-old Halifax man was walking north in the northbound lanes when he was struck by a Volvo SUV. The driver of the Volvo was not injured.

A short distance from the scene of the crash a vehicle was discovered unoccupied in the breakdown lane. That vehicle was registered to the pedestrian.

The two left lanes of Route 495 northbound were closed from the time of the crash until approximately 7:30 a.m. this morning.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. That investigation is being conducted by the State Police-Foxborough Barracks, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
