HANCOCK - A 20-year-old Frederick, Md., man was killed Friday morning when his car crossed the eastbound lanes and the grass median of Interstate 68 west of Hancock and collided with a highway sign, then a dump truck, Maryland State Police said.
Daniel Wright was the driver of the 2001 Toyota Solara, according to Trooper 1st Class C.W. Faith, chief investigator on the 9:20 a.m. accident at the 72-mile marker on the west side of Sideling Hill.
Wright wasn't wearing a seat belt, Faith said in a written press release.
The car first hit a posted highway sign before striking the Maryland State Highway Administration dump truck head-on traveling westbound on I-68.
The dump truck was pulling a directional arrow board to warn westbound motorists of a highway crew collecting refuse in the median, police said.
