Man hit by truck owned corner store at busy intersection

Anthony Sellari died at hospital Monday morning

READING, Pa. - The man who died after being hit by a tractor trailer in southwest Reading owned a corner store at the busy intersection where the accident happened.

The Berks County coroner identified the victim as Anthony Sellari, 69, of Reading. He owned Sellari's store at Lancaster Avenue and Kenhorst Boulevard, where he was struck late Monday morning.

The store sells groceries and lottery tickets. A handwritten note taped to the door Tuesday informed customers that the store was "closed due to family emergency."

The intersection was kept closed for about two hours after the accident while police conducted their on-scene investigation. So far, detectives have released no additional information.
