Groton — A man was fatally struck by a vehicle outside of Electric Boat about 10 p.m. Tuesday, officials and a family member said.
The man, an employee of the Reactor Plant Contracting Organization based in Groton, was leaving EB at the end of his shift, walking east in a crosswalk from the South Gate when he was struck by a vehicle going south on Eastern Point Road, according to EB President Kevin Graney and the City of Groton Police Department.
He died at the scene, police said.
The driver did not sustain any injuries, police said.
The man’s name was not yet being released by police or the family.
Last month, two EB employees were seriously injured when they were struck by a vehicle in the roundabout near the EB facility in New London. A man and woman both sustained injuries in the one-car accident, which happened on Pequot
