A pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle Saturday night on Route 3 in Billerica, Massachusetts, forcing several lanes of traffic to close, transportation officials and state police said.

The incident occurred on Route 3 northbound, prior to Exit 78, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation said.

Delays in the area were expected. Two right travel lanes were initially closed, and MassDOT later said only the left breakdown lane was open on Route 3 northbound, prior to Exit 78 in Billerica.

Massachusetts State Police tell NBC10 Boston that the driver involved stayed on the scene. They are investigating the fatal pedestrian crash.

The traffic lanes were closed to accommodate the on-scene investigation, which was estimated to last around two hours, according to transportation officials. All lanes were reopened around 10:20 p.m.
