Police: 20-year-old killed; hit by two different cars
SHAFTSBURY, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say a Manchester, Vermont, man was killed after getting hit twice on Route 7 in Shaftsbury Wednesday night.
Vermont State Police say the first driver told them the victim was walking out in front of their car. Troopers say it appears that the first driver tried to brake and swerve to miss the man, but hit him with the driver’s side of the car.
Another driver right behind that car then hit the man head-on.
Officers say the man who was hit, Frederic Wu, 20, died at the scene. His car was found 100-feet down an embankment.
Both the northbound and southbound lanes were closed from around 9:40 p.m. Wednesday to early Thursday morning. They have since reopened, but police are still investigating what happened.
