A Virginia man was struck and killed in Prince George’s County on Wednesday afternoon while running across Interstate 495 to his disabled vehicle, according to Maryland State Police.

Shortly after 12:40 p.m., troopers from the Maryland State Police College Park Barrack responded to the Outer Loop of I-495 at Route 450 for a collision involving a pedestrian.

Ryan Cain, 26, of Virginia, was running from the right shoulder across the highway to the left shoulder where his vehicle was disabled, when the driver of a gray 2007 Honda Accord struck him in the left lane, according to a news release.

Police say that the Honda slowed down for traffic that was yielding to Cain when it struck him.

The driver of the Honda stayed at the scene.
