A Pikesville man was seriously injured Friday when he was struck by a sport utility vehicle while bicycling near his home, Baltimore County police said.
Melvin Pachino, 52, of the 2700 block of Waco Court, was riding west on Smith Avenue near Carla Road shortly after 11 a.m. when an eastbound Honda Pilot made a left turn and struck Pachino, according to Julia Hardgrove, a county police spokeswoman. The vehicle was driven by Shunji Watanabe of the 7600 block of Carla Road, she said.
Pachino was flown to Shock Trauma with potentially life threatening injuries, where he was in critical condition Friday night. The investigation continues and charges are pending, the spokeswoman said.
