The 36-year-old man was identified as Michael A. Coll, of Drexel Hill, Pa., said Sgt. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police Friday morning. Green said the investigation was still underway and so could not release any details about how the collision occurred or why the man was walking along the interstate.
