A 58-year-old man died after being hit by a car Friday morning in Quincy, Massachusetts. The driver, a 32-year-old Quincy woman, stayed at the scene and is cooperating with police.
The victim, identified by Quincy police as Donald Bowes, was struck on Newport Avenue just after 4 a.m., police said. Newport Avenue was closed from Holbrook Road to the West Squantum Street overpass Friday morning. It has since reopened.
Quincy police said Bowes was in the crosswalk at the time of the crash. His family said he was on his way to work when he was killed.
Bowes was a longtime employee and familiar face to many at Fenway Park, having worked there as a security supervisor, according to a statement from the Red Sox.
