CHELMSFORD, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a man in a wheelchair who died after he was struck by a pickup truck on Saturday.
A Middlesex district attorney said Sunday that 72-year-old James Conlon, of Boston, was visiting family in Chelmsford. He was struck crossing a road at about 3 p.m. Saturday.
Police Chief James Spinney said it appeared that Conlon was using a crosswalk, but it's not clear if he had a light indicating it was safe to cross. The accident happened on Westford Road at the intersection with Drum Hill Traffic Square.
Police said the 45-year-old pickup truck driver, from Hudson, New Hampshire, was cooperating in the investigation.
Alcohol and drugs are not suspected. No charges have been filed.
The investigation is continuing.
