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.

We all need to pay attention to the road. We all drive faster & are so easily distracted. This never should have happened!!
