FREDERICK, Md. - The driver who struck and killed a highway worker on the shoulder of a ramp in June was charged Monday in the incident, Maryland State Police said.

Brian James McCully was issued a traffic citation for negligent driving, which carries a fine of $280, police said in a news release.

McCully was exiting from U.S. 340 onto eastbound Interstate 70 June 26 when his pickup truck struck State Highway Administration worker Richard Wayne Moser, who died at the scene, police said.

A lengthy investigation revealed Moser was on the left shoulder of the ramp sweeping the roadway when McCully drove onto the shoulder, police said. Speed and alcohol were not factors, they said.

The Maryland State Police Crash Team and the Frederick County State's Attorney's Office conducted the investigation and review, police said.
