NANTICOKE - A man was killed when he was struck by a vehicle in front of his house on West Union Street early Friday morning.

Nicholas Zurilla, 60, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Luzerne County Coroner’s Office.

Zurilla was struck as he crossed the street in front of his house, 340 W. Union St., at about 2:30 a.m.

The driver of the vehicle struck several parked vehicles and came to a stop in front of a vacant house at 409 W. Union St., about 115 yards from where Zurilla was struck.

Neighbors said the street has become a “raceway” since it was paved about two years ago.

It was not immediately known if any charges will be filed.
