Pedestrian Struck by Truck on I-270

Man transported to hospital with traumatic injuries; portion of highway closed

A pedestrian was struck by a truck traveling south on Interstate 270, near Old Hundred Road in Clarksburg.

The victim, an adult male, may have been tending to a disabled vehicle. He was transported to the hospital with traumatic injuries, according to Cpt. Oscar Garcia, a spokesman for Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service.

Garcia said rescuers were dispatched at around noon. Montgomery County Police and Maryland State Police were investigating the incident.

A portion of the highway was shut down, though as of 1 p.m. southbound traffic appeared to be moving slowly, Garcia said.

Patch will update this story as more information becomes available.

I was at the scene & helped stabilize the man until the ems arrived & if it had not been for the nurse practitioner who luckily was there who knows how it would've went for him I didn't get his name but he deserves a lot of credit for helping save that mans life. And to all the people who drove bye an elderly man lying in the middle of the highway shame on you that is truly what is wrong with country
