PITTSFIELD-A man from New Hampshire was killed last night after getting struck by a tractor trailer on Interstate 95.
State Police say Dustin Smithurst, 27, lost control of his vehicle and skidded into the median before striking some trees in Pittsfield.
It was just before 6:00 p.m. Sunday night when a wrecker was called to help remove the disabled car.
Officials say Smithurst was standing in the passing lane watching the effort when he was hit by a passing Hannaford’s tractor trailer truck.
Smithurst was rushed to Eastern Maine Medical Center where he passed away during the night.
The truck was driven by a 54-year-old man from Saco.
No charges have been filed in the case, although the case will be reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office once the police investigation has wrapped up.
