A vehicle of interest that may be involved in a fatal pedestrian crash Tuesday morning in Boston's Charlestown neighborhood has been located, police have announced.
No other details on the vehicle of interest or a driver have been released.
Boston police said a person was struck in the City Square area near the North Washington Bridge at about 11:30 a.m.
The victim, identified Wednesday as 92-year-old Francis McGrath of Stoneham, Massachusetts, was initially hit about a mile away from where they were found, police said.
"It appears it started down on Terminal Street, all the way at the end of Chelsea Street and it comes right to the I-93 on-ramp behind us," a police officer said. "We are collecting evidence from that location to this location."

Traffic in the area was severely impacted throughout the day while police investigated the scene. The North Washington Bridge was temporarily closed.
Area residents say the busy stretch of road always brings inherent dangers.
"It is definitely scary, I just hope people take the time to really look at their surrounding area when they are driving or they are walking," said one area resident.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
