NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — A western Massachusetts doctor has died after being struck by a pickup truck while crossing a Northampton street on Halloween.

Authorities say Dr. Pallav Parakh of Hatfield died Monday at a Springfield hospital as a result of the head injuries he suffered Oct. 31.

He was a doctor at Baystate Medical Practices Greenfield Gastroenterology, and leaves behind a wife and daughter.

No charges have been field against the driver of the truck that struck Parakh, a 25-year-old Chesterfield man.

The Northwestern district attorney's office says the crash remains under investigation and charges are possible.
