A motorist fleeing from police died after he jumped off an overpass onto the Capitol Beltway and into the path of an oncoming truck, according to Maryland State Police.

The suspect was identified as Christopher Jarrell Wood, of Temple Hills.

Police said officers tried to pull over Wood at about 3 a.m. Tuesday in College Park. Wood kept driving south on Interstate 495 and tried to exit onto eastbound U.S. Route 50 in Lanham, police said.

The car crashed into a barrier. Wood jumped out of his car and leapt over the barrier, landing on I-495, police said. He was struck by a 2009 Toyota  truck and died.
