SWANSEA (AP) – Massachusetts State Police say a 32-year-old man has died after being struck on a highway by a car driven by a Rhode Island resident.

Police say Luciano was walking in the eastbound left travel lane when he was hit shortly before midnight. Authorities say they’re trying to determine why he was walking on the highway.
