WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A pedestrian has been killed after being struck by two cars while trying to cross a city street during rush hour.
Worcester police say the accident happened at about 5:30 p.m. Friday in the area of 98 Chandler St.
The unidentified 55-year-old man suffered extensive injuries and died in the emergency room shortly after being transported to the hospital.
