    The driver of the car, 28-year-old James Williams II, of Clinton, stayed on the scene. Williams and a boy who was inside the car were not injured, police said.

    Police say it's unclear why the pedestrian walked into the road, but alcohol was likely a factor. They did not specify who may have been under the influence.

    Police have not yet released the man's name, pending the notification of his family. Maryland State Police plan to conduct a detailed crash reconstruction, and the State's Attorney's Office will decide whether to press charges. 

    The road was partly closed until about 5:45 a.m. on Sunday.
