Massachusetts State Police are investigating a fatal crash on Route 93 northbound between Exits 38 and 39.

Preliminary investigation by Troopers from the State Police-Andover Barracks, assisted by specialty units, suggests the victim, a 43-year-old Tewksbury woman, was struck by a motor vehicle and killed as she was on foot in the right travel lane. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was on foot because she had previously crashed her vehicle, a 2002 Ford Escape, into the woodline to the right of the roadway and walked away from the vehicle.

The vehicle that struck her while she was on foot, a 2004 Honda CRV operated by a 24-year-old Methuen man, remained at the scene.

Troopers responded to the scene at 10:30 p.m. The facts and circumstances of the incident — including why the victim initially went off the road and crashed in the woodline — remain under investigation by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.

All lanes have re-opened.

No further information, including the victim’s name, is being released tonight.
