Md. man killed by truck on Beltway

By Ruben Castaneda

A Crofton man was killed on the Capital Beltway Monday night when he was struck by a truck, Maryland state police said.

At about 8:45 p.m., Maryland state troopers went to the northbound I-495 near Route 1 for a report of a pedestrian in the roadway.

Troopers found John M. Beasley, 37, lying unresponsive on the right shoulder. Paramedics took Beasley to Prince George's Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead.

State police identified the driver of the truck that struck Beasley as John W. Broderick, 57, of Crofton.

Information about possible charges in the incident was not immediately available. The incident is still being investigated.

Is this a typo, or just a weird coincidence that both the slain pedestrian and the truck driver who struck him were from Crofton? (...considering that the crash did not happen in Crofton or along any roads leading to Crofton!)
