A pedestrian was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore Wednesday night after being struck by a vehicle in Bel Air.

At about 7:50 p.m. responders were called to Route 24 and Marketplace Drive for a serious motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian, according to Harford County Volunteer EMS and Fire Association spokesman Rich Gardiner.

A Bel Air medic unit transported the pedestrian, with critical injuries, to Shock Trauma because the Maryland State Police Medevac was down due to the weather, Gardiner said.

Nicholas Bradley Conn, 33, of the 300 block of Stratford Avenue in Aberdeen, was crossing Route 24 from the southbound side at 7:45 p.m. when he was struck by a vehicle in the northbound lane, Bel Air Police Chief Leo Matrangola wrote in an e-mail Thursday.

Conn was approximately 300 feet north of the crosswalk at the time and the vehicle was traveling on Route 24 at West MacPhail Road, he added. Police and responders found Conn off the roadway.

As of 11 a.m. Thursday, Conn was in surgery, according to Matrangola.

Bel Air Police Department is investigating the incident and an accident reconstruction team from the Harford County Sheriff's Office was called to the scene to assist.
