— A man died Saturday evening after he was struck by two vehicles while crossing Interstate-40 in Greensboro.

Around 11:30 p.m., Donald Melton III, 33, of Kernersville was struck while crossing I-40 W between W. Wendover Avenue and Guilford College Road.

Officials say Melton was initially struck by a tractor trailer. Due to traffic volume, he was struck by an SUV immediately after. Melton was pronounced dead at the scene, officials say.
