A man who jumped from Md. Route 100 onto southbound Interstate-95 Sunday afternoon near the Howard and Anne Arundel counties line was killed when he landed on top of a multi-passenger vehicle, said state police at the Waterloo Barracks. The death has been ruled a suicide and the man's identity was withheld pending notification of his family.

Shortly after 5 p.m., state police found the man's body lying in the roadway. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the driver of the Mercury Villager van on which the man landed was not injured. Traffic was interrupted for about three hours while police investigated the incident.
