Early Tuesday morning, a 64-year-old man died after being hit by a car on an Interstate 84 exit ramp in Newtown.
The fatal collision occurred around 9 a.m. when the 64-year-old exited his vehicle after pulling onto the right shoulder of the exit 11 off ramp. While out of his vehicle, another car traveling on the ramp hit the 64-year-old and his car, according to Connecticut State Police (CSP).
The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders.
The other driver, an 18-year-old from Sandy Hook, was not injured in the crash.
Both vehicles were towed from the crash site and the exit ramp was closed until approximately 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday.
The crash is still under investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to contact State Police Troop A at 203-267-2200.
