Police: Cherry Hill man, 37, walking on I-295, struck and killed

Submitted by New Jersey truck crash lawyer, Jeffrey Hark.

A 37-year-old Cherry Hill man walking on Interstate 295 in Burlington County early Monday was killed when he was struck by a tractor trailer, police said.

Tyron DuBose II was walking on the highway at about 3:30 a.m. Monday when he was struck by a white tractor trailer heading north in Mount Laurel, a New Jersey State Police spokesman said.

The male truck driver, who stopped about 300 feet north of the crash, told police that he saw a man walking on the dashed white lines of the highway dividing the right and center lanes, and that he tried to stop his truck, which was in the right lane, but struck the man with his truck.

DuBose was then struck a second time by another vehicle, which also stopped near the scene, State Police Spokesman Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams said.

Police found the truck driver standing outside of his vehicle “clearly distraught,” Williams said. The other vehicle that struck DuBose, a silver passenger vehicle, had stopped in front of the truck, he said.

I-295 North was completely shut down in that area for a couple of hours after the accident. It has since reopened.

Williams said the tractor trailer has been impounded and the incident remains under investigation.
