Incident: Police said Michael Calderone, 43, of McSherrystown, was driving a 2001 Buick Century southbound on Hanover Street when he struck something on the road.

Calderone pulled over and found Torres Arce laying on the highway, according to officials.

Police and EMS responded, and Torres Arce was taken to Hanover Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Witnesses told authorities that Torres Arce was standing in the middle of the road facing north in the southbound lane, police said. He was wearing all black, making him hard to see at that time of night, and police said he made no attempt to move out of the way of the car.

Calderone told police he didn't see Torres Arce in the road because of the glare of the headlights from an oncoming vehicle, according to officials.

He told police he thought he had struck a deer, authorities said.

The coroner's office said there will not be an autopsy, but a routine toxicology was done.
