Person killed after being hit by car on US 422 in Union Twp.
A person was killed in Union Township Friday night after being struck by a car while walking along US 422.
Police say the incident happened around 10:30 p.m. on Benjamin Franklin Parkway near the westbound ramp to I-376.
The accident was just a mile east of the crash that sent a stake-body truck over a bridge and into a small creek around 4:30 p.m.
The victim was found lying in the middle of the westbound lanes, and a coroner was called to the scene.
The westbound lanes in that area were completely shutdown.
Witnesses on the scene say the driver was there and thought that he hit a deer.
Pennsylvania State Police and Union Township Police are investigating.
