State Police have identified the 24-year-old man killed on Interstate 95 Northbound in Milford on Friday morning. 

At 2:41 a.m.,  I-95 Northbound was shut down between exits 39B and 40 due to an accident involving a pedestrian. That accident has since been cleared and the highway has reopened. 

Connecticut State Police say that Hyundai Elantra was broken down in the left lane of three lanes when a Toyota Camry, driven by 35-year-old Boris Shapiro, of New York, was traveling in the left lane. 

According to police, the Toyota then struck a 24-year-old Javier Alfredo Lopez Marrero, of Tampa, Florida, who was standing near the disabled Hyundai. 

Marrero was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

His passenger, 20-year-old Genesis Nicole Santiago Pizarro, also of Tampa, was also taken to the hospital for minor injuries. 

Shapiro was not injured. 

The accident remains under investigation.  Anyone who witnessed it is urged to contact troopers at 203-656-2500.
