A man who crashed his car on the Taconic State Parkway was killed by another car after he got out of his vehicle.

Police say the 49-year-old victim, a gastroenterologist, was believed to be heading to his practice in Fishkill, N.Y., when the accident occurred.

They say Qian Xie lost control of his SUV around 8 a.m. Thursday on the parkway in Putnam Valley.

Police say the road was slick from heavy rain.

The Journal News says the SUV struck a rock outcropping, careened across the road and struck the center guardrail. Police say he wasn't injured and got out of the car. They say another vehicle rounded a slight bend and struck Xie while trying to avoid his car.

The investigation is continuing. No charges were filed.
