Update 3:28 p.m. Sunday, May 27
A Bristol man who was walking in the northbound lane of Route 8 died Sunday morning after being hit by two cars, state police said.
The man, 34-year-old Sage Corliss, was reportedly in the breakdown lane on the left side when he was struck, said State Police Public Information Trooper Kelly Grant.
The incident happened around 4 a.m. in the area just before the Exit 30 off-ramp in Waterbury, which is about a mile-and-a-half north of the Naugatuck town line.
Grant said it wasn't clear what direction Corliss was coming from. She said the case remains under investigation.
