April 08, 1997

A Falling Waters, W.Va., man died in an accident on Interstate 81 just south of Salem Avenue Monday morning, police said.

Michael P. Myers, 31, of 156 Broadview Court, was driving a 1994 Ford Ranger southbound on I-81 at 5:05 a.m. when he apparently fell asleep, Maryland State Police said.

The Ford traveled onto the right shoulder, then went back across both lanes before overturning several times, police said. Myers, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown out and subsequently struck by two passing vehicles, police said.

The accident is still under investigation, police said.
