AUBURN — A 43-year-old Auburn man died from his injuries after he was struck by a car Friday night just south of the Massabesic traffic circle in Auburn, police have confirmed.
At about 9 p.m. Friday, Bernard Bruso was walking north in the southbound travel lane of the Route 28 Bypass (Londonderry Turnpike) when a 2014 Lincoln Navigator driven by Charles Myette, 69, of Chester struck him, police said.
Bruso was brought to Elliot Hospital in Manchester where he later died.
Auburn police confirmed the death just before 2 a.m. Saturday in a press release.
The crash was in the area of 57 Londonderry Turnpike, near the Auburn-Manchester line.
Fire and emergency medical service departments had requested information on the availability of a medical helicopter to transport the victim.
Officials had said the stormy weather did not make it possible to use the helicopter for transport.
The Londonderry Turnpike, also known as the Route 28 Bypass, was closed to traffic after the accident, officials said.
The incident remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Muzafer Aku of the Auburn Police Department at 603-483-2134 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Auburn Police and Fire departments were assisted at the scene by the NH State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit and the state Department of Transportation.
