A pedestrian was killed early Saturday after he was struck by two cars traveling south on Interstate 95 near the Edgewood exit in Harford County.

Maryland State Police identified the man as Levon Michael Brown, 27, of Rosedale.

According to police, he was the driver of a vehicle involved in an accident on the northbound side of I-95, also near the Edgewood exit, about 4:15 a.m. He then fled to the southbound side of I-95 and was struck by two vehicles, a 2006 Honda CRV and a 2002 Subaru Outback wagon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Brown was charged in Baltimore City in 2004 with driving without a license, a case that is still open after he failed to appear in District Court.

According to state police, a passenger in Brown's car was taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center with minor injuries.

No charges were filed.

Southbound lanes of the interstate were closed for about three hours and reopened about 7:30 a.m.
