Homeless pedestrian incurred life-threatening injuries Thursday, after hit-and-run

On Thursday December 16, 2021, a 53-year-old pedestrian with no fixed residential address, was hit by the driver of a suspected dark-colored F-150 pickup. The driver of the truck did not stop, or fled the scene.

At approximately 6 p.m., Anne Arundel County Police Department officers responded to the 7500-block of Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie for the hit-and-run crash involving the pedestrian. The investigation revealed that a pedestrian attempted to cross the northbound lanes of Ritchie Highway from the grass median when he was struck by a dark-colored pickup truck.

The pedestrian was wearing dark, non-reflective clothing. The driver of the pickup truck fled northbound on Ritchie Highway and then made a right turn onto Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard toward Route 10. The striking vehicle is possibly a General Motors product.

The pedestrian was transported to an area trauma center with life-threatening injuries. Preliminarily, pedestrian error is believed to be the primary cause of this crash. The crash is currently under investigation by the Traffic Safety Section.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact 410-222-4700.
