A Brooklyn man died Thursday after he was struck by a side-view mirror of a passing truck in Glen Burnie.
Maryland State Police wrote in a release that officers were called to the scene of a pedestrian struck on Baltimore-Washington Parkway north of Interstate 195 at around 5:45 a.m.
Police said Hugh Anthony Clarke, 44, crashed his Honda Pilot into a cable barrier in the median while driving southbound. He got out of his car and began walking in the left lane of the roadway when he was struck by a passing truck, police said.
Police said Walter John Riehl Jr., 56, of Pennsylvania, had swerved his Penske truck in an attempt to avoid hitting Clarke, but ultimately struck him with a side-view mirror.
