Anne Arundel County Police say a pedestrian was hit by a car Friday in an incident they believe might have stemmed from a traffic dispute between occupants of one vehicle and the driver of another.

According to police, at about 11:45 p.m., officers responded to westbound Route 100 in Pasadena for a report of a vehicle crash and found a pedestrian had been struck.

Police said a preliminary investigation indicates an Acura was heading west on Route 100 and attempted to notify police about a SUV being operated "in a reckless manner," police said. Near the intersection of Magothy Beach Road, the SUV stopped, blocking the Acura, police said.

Police said two occupants of the SUV got out of the vehicle and approached the Acura. The driver of the Acura attempted to drive away, and while the Acura was moving, a third person who had exited the SUV was struck, police said. The driver of the Acura drove from the scene, then called police from a nearby business, according to the police report.

The pedestrian was transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma, where he was listed in serious but stable condition, police said.

No charges have been filed while the incident is under investigation, police said. Police are asking that anybody with information call 410-222-8610 or contact Eastern district at 410-222-6145.
