Man on Foot on I-68 Killed by Trooper's Car in Md.

Posted: Updated:

GRANTSVILLE, Md. (AP) - Maryland State Police say a trooper fatally struck a truck driver who was running across the traffic lanes of Interstate 68 near Grantsville.

Police say 39-year-old Lamont Scaife of Orlando died from injuries he suffered late Tuesday night.

State police say the driver had parked his disabled tractor-trailer on the shoulder near Chestnut Ridge Road. His passenger told police the driver opened the driver's side door and a piece of paper blew onto the highway.

The witness told police the driver chased the paper across the traffic lanes and into the path of a patrol car driven by Trooper First Class Scott Bell, a 3 1/2-year veteran. Bell wasn't hurt.

The Maryland State Police CRASH team is reconstructing the incident as the investigation continues.
