Ocean City Police Warn Visitors To Be Cautious

OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Police in Ocean City are urging visitors to be cautious after two pedestrians have been struck and killed while crossing Coastal Highway this season.

Police Officer Mike Levy tells WTOP Radio that visitors often are in a hurry to cross the road to reach the beach. Police are urging visitors to only cross the highway at crosswalks and to keep a close eye on drivers.

On May 28, a 22-year-old man was killed while trying to cross the road. The driver, Diogo Facchini of Lorton, Va., is charged with homicide by motor vehicle while intoxicated.

This week, a 15-year-old Allegany County girl has died after being struck by a car Tuesday while trying to cross the road against a “no walk” sign. The 17-year-old driver was not charged.
