Man struck, killed, crossing street in W. Brookfield

Posted: Updated:
WEST BROOKFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A 69-year-old man who had recently moved from Maine has been struck and killed by a car while walking across a West Brookfield street.
Police say Robert Herrie Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene after being struck while crossing Route 9 at about 6:45 p.m. Monday.
Herrie was struck in the westbound lane.
Police say he was from Brownfield, Maine, but neighbors tell The Telegram & Gazette of Worcester that he had recently moved into a nearby apartment complex because his son lived in town.
The car that struck him stopped. It was driven by a 65-year-old Sturbridge man who has not been charged.
Neighbors say residents of the apartment complex frequently cross the busy street to shop at a nearby convenience store.
