STROUD TOWNSHIP -- We now know the name of the man who was hit and killed by a tow truck in Monroe County.

The coroner has identified the victim as Joseph Volper, 62.

Police say Volper was walking in the turning lane of Route 611 near Bartonsville Tuesday morning when he was struck by the tow truck.

The truck driver says he did not see Volper because of the sun glare.

    He probably couldn’t take it no more in these sub freezing temperatures. Damn shame. Where’s our government to help these unfortunate people.

    sidewalks would be nice while devolving multi million dollar interchanges and shopping centers. Nothing like having a sidewalk from a Walmart out to a road that has no sidewalk. But put those handicapped crossings in on every corner even when there are not sidewalks.
