BALTIMORE, Md. – A man is dead after police say he jumped out of a moving car onto I-695 Wednesday.

Investigators say the driver of a car struck another car on the ramp from Security Boulevard to the outer loop of I-695 and continued onto the beltway in lane 3.

Witnesses told police that same driver jumped out of a moving car into lane 2.

A tractor-trailer was travelling in that same lane and was unable to stop. That tractor-trailer ultimately struck the driver who just jumped.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators do not know why the driver jumped. The car the driver jumped out of eventually came to a stop on the left side jersey wall and did not strike any other vehicles.

Police say there were no other injuries.
