Miami, Florida (AP) --

A medical examiner's report says a man who was fatally struck by a car on an expressway after jumping out of a taxi was a 24-year-old from Cuba.

Lizandro Marino-Morales went to
Mexico after leaving Cuba about a week ago. He then went to Dallas
and boarded a flight to Miami where he planned to stay with a
cousin.

While in a taxi early Tuesday morning (9-28), authorities say he
started muttering to himself and jumped out of the car. The Florida
Highway Patrol says Marino-Morales laid down in the middle of the
Palmetto Expressway and was killed by an oncoming car.

Marino-Morales was married and studying to be an engineer.
Relatives told the medical examiner's office Wednesday, September 29 that he had no known medical issues.

No charges have been filed.
