Investigators say they do not know why the man was in the roadway at the time.
The right two lanes of the highway were closed following the crash, causing delays. Left lanes remained open for travel, as did Exits 30A/B. All lanes have since reopened.
The tractor trailer driver did stop following the collision. Police say he is a 40-year-old man from Northampton, Pennsylvania.
No charges have been filed but the crash remains under investigation.
