Police closed Route 15 south in Woodbridge on Friday morning after a body was found on the side of the highway.

Troopers were called to the area at 8:40 a.m. on Friday after Department of Transportation workers found the body of an adult near exit 59 on Route 15 south.

Route 15 was closed between exits 59 and 58, however as of a little after 3 p.m., the road had reopened however delays were still present. At one point, there was a 7-mile backup in the area.

Police said this appears to be a car versus pedestrian incident. There was a vehicle near the scene that was eventually towed away, but it is unclear if that vehicle was connected to the investigation.

No further details were released by police.

Anyone who may have seen a car versus pedestrian crash happen in the area sometime overnight should contact police at (203)393-4200.
