HAMPTON — A Seabrook bridge attendant died at a Boston hospital Tuesday after being struck by a vehicle at the end of his shift Friday night.
Michael Keating, a spokesman for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, confirmed that James Hayes died Tuesday.
Hampton police said they were notified by a Seabrook police officer around 10:10 p.m. Friday of a reported motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian on the Neil Underwood Bridge.
Responding officers found a pedestrian, later identified as Hayes, in the roadway, and the involved vehicle at the scene.
Hayes, of Seabrook, was taken to Exeter Hospital by Hampton Fire/Rescue and was later flown by helicopter to a hospital in Boston.
