A driver who got out of his car to help a pedestrian he just struck late Wednesday on Route 75 was then hit by a passing car and killed, police said. Officers were called to a busy stretch of Route 75 near the Friendly’s restaurant about 10 p.m. for the crash. When they arrived, they learned that 64-year-old Michael Mangeri of Windsor Locks was driving north on Route 75 when he hit a pedestrian crossing the road.
