Pedestrian Killed After Being Hit by Tractor-Trailer on I-95

The man was walking along I-95 to a gas station after his car ran out of gas

Virginia State Police said a man was fatally hit by tractor-trailer while walking along Interstate 95 after running out of gas.

Police said three people were traveling south on Interstate 95 early Monday when their Honda CRV ran out of gas in Prince William County. They pulled over near Route 123 and called 911. Police said they didn't want to pay for a wrecker and set off for a gas station on foot.

About a half mile south, police said one man was hit by a southbound tractor-trailer. He was taken to a hospital, where he later died. Police identified the man as Isaac Salgado, 22, of Lorton. Police said the other two people with him weren't hurt.

Police are investigating the crash.
