Man fatally struck by vehicle, allegedly fleeing police
SEEKONK, Mass. (AP) — Police are investigating the death of a man fatally struck by a vehicle on Interstate 195 in Seekonk, Massachusetts, after allegedly attempting to flee police on foot.
Massachusetts State Police say a Seekonk police officer attempted to stop 29-year-old Anthony Perry, of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Saturday night when he was driving. Perry then drove behind a motel and fled on foot, running onto the interstate. Policy say Perry was then struck by a Honda Odyssey.
Perry was taken to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the Honda Odyssey has been identified only as a Rhode Island woman. She and her two passengers were not injured in the crash.
