HOPKINTON/NEWTON

State Police asked today for the public's help finding the vehicle and driver who struck and killed a 25-year-old Newton man as he tried to cross Interstate 495 near Hopkinton early Saturday.

Michael B. MacDonald was a passenger in a vehicle that pulled into the southbound breakdown lane of I-495 south of Route 90. MacDonald got out of the vehicle and was struck about 4:35 a.m. Saturday by an unknown vehicle that did not stop. He was rushed to Milford Regional Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or who has information is urged to contact the State Police barracks in Grafton at 508-839-4423.
