Northern District


Pedestrian Crash – Critical Injury                                                                            Glen Burnie



On December 23, 2017 at 5:31 p.m. officers responded to Crain Hwy (MD-3) & Baltimore Annapolis Blvd (MD-648) in Glen Burnie for accident involving a pedestrian struck. Investigation showed that a Chevrolet van entered the intersection against a red traffic signal and struck a pedestrian crossing Crain Hwy in the marked crosswalk.  The pedestrian was transported to Shock Trauma with critical injuries but is expected to survive. Neither the driver nor the passenger in the van was injured.


The primary cause of this collision is the van driver failing to stop for a red traffic control signal.  A secondary factor may have been the darkness and light rain/mist.  Neither alcohol nor speed is believed to be contributing factors.  The Traffic Safety Section is handing the investigation and charges, if any, will be after review by the State’s Attorney.
