MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - A pedestrian was hit and killed by a vehicle in Manchester, New Hampshire on Saturday morning as he was trying to cross a highway to get to a nearby gas station, officials said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The drivers of all three vehicles remained on scene and are cooperating with police, authorities said.
