BOSTON — Police say a pedestrian apparently trying to cross the southbound lanes of the Expressway in Boston has been struck and killed.

The driver of the vehicle that hit the victim, a 47-year-old Brockton man, was taken to Boston Medical Center.

Police say he remained at the scene, called 911, and did not show any signs of impairment. Police say his version of events matched up with witness accounts.

A reconstruction of the crash is underway to determine whether speed was a factor.
