Another vehicle, a Honda Accord, struck Davis a second time, after the driver was not able to see his body, police said. Emergency responders pronounced Davis dead at the scene.
The drivers of each vehicle were not injured.
The accident left the area of I495 closed for three hours.
State Police say their investigation is ongoing.
Overnight look for passing clouds and a few flurries. Bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks. Lows in the upper teens and low 20s.
The cold stays with us for a few more days with highs around freezing.
Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
