Authorities Urge Caution By Pedestrians, Drivers
PIKESVILLE, Md. (AP) — State Police and the Motor Vehicle Administration are urging residents to exercise caution after three pedestrians were struck and killed over the weekend.
Troopers say the fatal accidents happened on Saturday in Prince George’s County and Monday in Harford and Caroline counties. One pedestrian was killed by a hit-and-run driver; all three incidents occurred after dark.
State Police Superintendent Col. Marcus Brown says more than 100 pedestrians are killed each year in Maryland. He urged pedestrians to make sure they are visible after dark by wearing retro-reflective material and to cross only in marked intersections and crosswalks.
