Based on roadway and scene evidence, police said the driver attempted to take evasive action prior to the collision but was unable to avoid striking the man, identified as Dale Sattizahn, of the 2100 block of Dundalk Avenue.

EMS responded to the scene, where Sattizahn was pronounced dead.

A collision reconstructionist from the Maryland State Police Westminster Barrack will be conducting the collision investigation, and anyone who witnessed the incident or has additional information regarding the collision is urged to call the barrack.

There were no obvious signs of impairment on the part of the driver nor does speed appear to be a factor in this collision, police said.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by Reese Fire Department and the State Highway Administration.

The roadway was closed for approximately two hours for the on-scene investigation.
