Pedestrian hit by truck on Thruway outside Albany

State police say a pedestrian has been hit by a tractor-trailer on the Thruway in the Albany area.

BETHLEHEM — State police say a pedestrian has been hit by a tractor-trailer on the Thruway in the Albany area.

Troopers with the Thruway detail say a man was hit in Interstate 87's southbound lanes in the town of Bethlehem around 1:30 a.m. Friday. The accident occurred between Exits 23 and 22. The right lane remains closed as police investigate.

Police say the man has been taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital. Information on his condition isn't available.

It's the second pedestrian accident on that stretch of the Thruway since last weekend. On Sunday night, 28-year-old David Miller of Rome in central New York died when he was hit by a truck while standing in the middle of I-87's southbound lanes between exits 24 and 23 in Albany.
