HENRIETTA, N.Y. (AP) - A Rochester-area highway has reopened after being shut down for several hours when a man was hit and killed by a vehicle while he stopped his car to adjust the rooftop luggage rack.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office tells local media outlets that 59-year-old Warren Grosjean of Honeoye (HUHN'-ee-oy) Falls was traveling south on Interstate 390 around 6:30 p.m. Sunday when he stopped in the right lane and got out to tend to the luggage rack.
Deputies say one car was able to swerve out of the way but a second vehicle couldn't avoid hitting Grosjean, who was killed.
The highway's southbound lanes were closed for several hours after the crash.
The accident happened near where I-390 meets the Thruway in the town of Henrietta, just south of Rochester.
