Maryland State Police are investigating a pedestrian-related crash in which one person was killed on I-695 Friday in Baltimore County.

According to police, shortly after 8:30 p.m. troopers responded to the outer loop of I-695 just prior to Liberty Road in Randallstown for a report of a pedestrian on the road under a pickup truck.

According to a preliminary investigation, the pedestrian was seen stumbling on the shoulder. Two witnesses parked their vehicle and attempted to help him.

Before these individuals could reach the person, the pedestrian stumbled into far right lane where he was struck by a Hyundai Genesis.

That crash pushed the victim into the next lane where he was struck by a Chevrolet Silverado. The Chevrolet then struck the rear of the Hyundai before coming to a rest. The pedestrian was pinned underneath the Chevrolet and was declared dead at the scene.

Investigators described the victim as a man between 30 and 50 years old, 5'11", 171 pounds with short black hair and a goatee. The victim also has several tattoos, including a black heart on his chest, “Mad Love” on his abdomen and a face with wings on his right arm.

The victim was found wearing black sweatpants, a red, white and blue jacket, a tuxedo shirt, black bow tie, white shirt, tan belt, white socks and white sneakers.

Neither of the two drivers involved in the crash were injured.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to contact the Maryland State Police Golden Ring Barrack at 410-780-2700.
