    BOSTON - A pedestrian was hit and killed by a car on Route 1A in East Boston early Wednesday morning, according to Boston police. 

    Route 1A south, near Curtis Street, was closed around 3:30 a.m. after a pedestrian was hit, according to a tweet from a MassDOT spokesperson. Both lanes were reopened just before 6 a.m. but heavy residual delays continue.

    Officials have not released any details on the person who was hit. A medical examiner arrived at the scene around 5:30 a.m.

    A black van seen parked near the side of the road with what appears to be a cracked windshield was towed from the scene, but it's unclear if it was involved in the incident.
