Delaware State Police have identified the man struck and killed in Wilmington on Saturday.

The victim is identified as 47-year-old John T. Davis of Wilmington.

Police say a tanker truck struck Davis who was standing on the roadway of I-495 near Route 13 just after 1:00 a.m.

Investigators say the driver of the truck was traveling northbound on I-495 and says he did not see Davis who was wearing dark clothing when he was hit.

The impact caused Davis to land in the center lane of northbound I-495 where he was struck a second time by a Honda Accord.

Davis pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say both vehicles remained at the scene. The drivers were not injured.

The northbound lanes of I-495 were shutdown during the investigation.
