RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A highly-traveled section of Interstate 440 westbound was closed Wednesday morning for more than five hours after a man was hit and killed on the road, according to Raleigh police.

Police told CBS 17 that a call regarding a pedestrian struck on I-440 westbound near the Lake Boone Trail exit came in at 3:55 a.m.

Officers arrived at the scene and found a man dead on the road. Police said the pedestrian was struck by multiple vehicles, but they’re not sure how many.

A number of vehicles believed to have run over the man remained at the scene, police said.

The section of I-440 westbound between exit 5 (Lake Boone Trail) and exit 4 (Wade Avenue) was shut down following the crash. The ramp from Lake Boone Trail to I-440 westbound was reopened at approximately 6:25 a.m. but part of the interstate remained closed for almost three more hours.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation estimated the road would reopen around 8 a.m. but the lanes remained closed until just after 9:15 a.m.

Police have not identified the victim and it’s not clear at this time if any charges will be filed.
