A 65-year-old Annapolis man died after he was struck Monday in Annapolis by a man police charged with negligent manslaughter, driving while impaired and multiple additional related charges, Annapolis police said.
Ernest Powell was walking on the sidewalk eastbound along West Street when he crossed a driveway for a group of businesses at 1950 West Street, police said. At the same time, Patrick Tackney, 48, of Annapolis, was exiting the driveway in a Chevrolet Tahoe to turn right, westbound on West Street, police said. The Tahoe struck Powell and then turned into the parking lot of the business at 1952 West Street, police said.
Powell sustained serious, life threatening injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment, police said. He died from his injuries.
Witnesses prevented Tackney from leaving the scene, police said. Tackney was arrested and charged with negligent manslaughter, driving while impaired and multiple additional related charges. He is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center without bond.
Emergency responders briefly shut both lanes of West Street in the area while they conducted their investigation, Annapolis Police spokeswoman Sgt. Amy Miguez said.
