The man who was hit died at the scene. His name has not been made public.

Residents say they’ve seen multiple crashes here over the years.

“They fly around the corner onto Stimson a lot and they fly from Roslindale or from Dedham, either way,” resident Lindsey Walsh told WBZ.

No other information is available at this point in the investigation.
