A person was struck and killed in an accident that closed several blocks in Jamestown on Friday.
First responders, including Jamestown police, firefighters and Alstar EMS, were alerted around 12:30 p.m. to a vehicle-pedestrian crash reportedly involving a car hauler at the intersection of Washington and West Sixth streets. Police quickly cordoned off the area to traffic, which included a block in each direction.
Capt. Robert Samuelson confirmed to The Post-Journal that the accident had resulted in a fatality.
Shortly after the accident, detectives arrived at the scene, began taking photographs and interviewed witnesses who reported seeing the hauler continue on West Sixth Street toward West Ellicott. The truck was later stopped in Lakewood, county dispatch stated.
The accident may have occurred further east on West Sixth Street, police said.
More information will be released when it becomes available.
