Worker ejected from truck, dies in hit-and-run

A 50-year-old worker was ejected from a street sweeper truck and then killed in a hit-and-run crash in Anne Arundel County, police said.

The incident occurred about 3 a.m. Tuesday on Interstate 97.

A truck that was traveling north on I-97 about 3 a.m. when it struck a concrete barrier. The driver turned the wheel sharply to the left, crossed the highway, struck a guardrail and overturned.

Both the driver and the passenger were ejected from the vehicle, and the passenger landed in the southbound lanes of the interstate. The passenger, Wilmer R. Borgmann III, of Millersville, Md., apparently got back up on his feet in a southbound lane when he was struck by a vehicle that did not stop, according to Maryland State Police.

His body landed 200 feet from the point of impact.

The striking vehicle is believed to have suffered extensive front end damage to the hood and windshield.
