UPDATE: NECN is reporting that the suspect’s vehicle is a landscaping truck with a red cab, black body and gray grill, though Wellesley police said Friday night they had not given the media any vehicle description.
Wellesley Police are investigating a fatal hit-and-run accident in which a Wellesley man in his 40s was killed when struck by a truck heading north on Weston Road near Linden Street, just outside of Wellesley Square. The name of the victim, who was equipped with a safety helmet, hasn’t been released. He was found unresponsive at the scene and transported to Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
Crash witnesses or others with information should contact the police at 781-235-1212.
A reader earlier this year asked us about whether the town was doing anything to further safeguard that intersection, and the police department said they patrol the area but that more formal changes would need to go through the Selectmen’s office. (Latest police crash map).
