Salem Police Dept.: At 7:11 p.m., the Salem Police Department responded to a report of a serious motor vehicle crash in the 2500 block of Lancaster Dr NE. Once officers arrived, it was determined the crash involved a single motor vehicle and a pedestrian. The pedestrian was deceased at the scene. The investigation revealed that a 1999 Dodge Caravan (gray in color) was traveling southbound in the curb lane of Lancaster Dr NE being operated by Meredith Howton (40 yrs. of age) when the van struck an unidentified adult male approximately 40-50 years old, who was apparently laying in the roadway. The pedestrian was dressed in dark clothing and this incident occurred in a darken stretch of Lancaster Dr NE.
