A Biddeford man died after being struck by two different vehicles on the Maine Turnpike in Saco on Saturday.

Tyler Seaver, 27, was struck first by a passenger vehicle and then by a tractor trailer in the northbound lane around 3 a.m.

Maine State Police are still trying to determine why Seaver was walking along the highway, Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland said Saturday evening.

Northbound lanes on the Turnpike were shut down for four hours and traffic was rerouted. Lanes reopened at 7:15 a.m.

The passenger car was driven by James Yionen, 47 and the truck was operated by Christoph Phillips, 49. Nether drivers were injured in the collision.

Police are trying to determine where and how the Seaver got onto the turnpike.
