State Police Investigate Pedestrian Fatal in Everett
At 9:30 p.m. Friday Troopers assigned to State Police-Medford responded to Revere Beach Parkway (Route 16) in Everett for a crash that resulted in the death of a male pedestrian.
Preliminary investigation indicates a 2012 Dodge Charger was traveling westbound on Route 16 in the right travel lane, approaching the intersection with Vine Street. Westbound traffic had a green light at the intersection.
Simultaneously, two pedestrians — an adult male and an adult female — were running across Route 16 from south to north. The pedestrians ran across all lanes of eastbound traffic and were crossing the westbound lanes when the male pedestrian was struck by the Charger in the right lane. The female pedestrian was not struck.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the pedestrians were crossing against the pedestrian signals at the intersection.
First responders administered emergency medical aid at the scene in an attempt to save the victim’s life. The victim, a 62-year-old Melrose man, was transported by ambulance to Whidden Hospital in Everett, where he later was pronounced deceased. His name is not being released at this time.
The operator of the Charger, a 24-year-old man from South Weber, Utah, remained at the scene.
No charges have been filed as of this time; the investigation into the facts and circumstances of the crash remains ongoing and is being conducted by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police with assistance from the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, and the State Police Detective Unit for Middlesex County.
No further information is being released at this time. Please do not call the barracks directly.
