    A man who was allegedly fleeing from police in Massachusetts was hit and killed by a van when he ran into the road Saturday night, according to state police.

    Police responded to the scene of the crash on Route 195 westbound near exit 1 in Seekonk around 8:25 p.m. A man, identified Sunday night as 29-year-old Anthony Perry of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, was hit in the left travel lane by a Honda Odyssey driven by a woman from the same state.

    Police say Perry originally tried to evade being stopped by Seekonk police by driving behind the Motel 6 on Fall River Avenue and fleeing on foot.

    He reportedly ran onto Route 195 and crossed the right and middle travel lanes before being hit by the van.
