ALBANY N.Y. – Police confirm that a man was killed crossing the Thruway near Exit 24.

New York State Police say the man was hit by a tractor trailer late Sunday night near mile marker 143 in Albany. 

The accident shut down the southbound lanes for several hours. Roads have since been reopened, following an investigation.

Authorities say the preliminary investigation reveals that the unidentified man was alone in the center of three southbound lanes when he was fatally struck by the tractor trailer. The man’s body was removed by the Albany County Coroner and taken to Albany Medical Center. 

State Police are continuing to investigate the accident and the identity of the person killed.
