Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Concord Chief of Police Joseph O’Connor have confirmed that a pedestrian has died after being struck by a commercial vehicle, a 2016 Ford Utility Pickup Truck, in Concord. At approximately 12:22 p.m. today, Concord Police responded to a report of a pedestrian, an adult male, who had been hit by a utility pickup truck at the intersection of Independence Road and Alcott Road in Concord.

This is an open and ongoing investigation being conducted by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, the Concord Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the Massachusetts State Police Commercial Enforcement Team and no charges have been filed.
