October 27, 2004

A Brookeville man was killed early yesterday when he was struck by a car while running across Route 175 in Jessup, Anne Arundel County police said.

About 5:15 a.m., Glenn Allan James, 20, was crossing the highway in a dimly lit area near the Baltimore-Washington Parkway overpass when he was hit by a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by William J. Slifker Jr., 66, of Crofton, said police spokesman Sgt. Shawn Urbas.

James suffered multiple fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, Urbas said. Slifker was not injured.

Investigators believe that pedestrian error was the cause of the accident. Urbas said James was wearing dark clothing and was not in a crosswalk when he was struck.
