BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland State Police report a victim was struck and killed on the Inner Loop of I-695 at Perring Parkway late Thursday night.
Officials say they received a call about a body located on the right shoulder of the interstate just after 11 p.m. When troopers arrived, they advised that aid was not able to be rendered due to the extent of the subject’s injuries.
Investigators say a preliminary examination showed injuries including head trauma, broken legs and body disfigurement. The victim, later identified as 44-year-old Brian Sedgwick was pronounced dead a short time later.
Troopers shut down lanes two, three, and the right shoulder in an attempt to secure the scene. All lanes have since been re-opened.
Baltimore County Police and State Troopers located the vehicle that hit the victim and the driver on the Inner Loop of I-95 at Harford Road. Police say the vehicle suffered significant damage. The victim’s vehicle was found unattended and without damage approximately a quarter mile in front of where the victim was struck.
Investigators believe Sedgwick was picking up debris that was left on the roadway when he was struck.
Police ask anyone with information about the accident to contact the Golden Ring Barrack at 410-780-2700. The investigation is still underway.
