A Drexel Hill man died after being hit trying to cross the Schuylkill Expressway on Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.
Joseph McHenry was hit by a white Toyota Tundra going about 50 m.p.h. after trying to climb over the highway's center concrete median and walk across the eastbound travel lanes, state police said. He was carrying a full gas can on his right shoulder and was struck in the right travel lane in Upper Merion Township, flipping over the hood of the pickup truck.
McHenry was taken to Bryn Mawr Hospital, where he later died. The driver stopped after the accident and dialed police.
State police ask that anyone with information call Trooper Jonathan Meister at 215-560-6200. - Anthony Campisi
