Three bicyclists were injured in two separate crashes in Anne Arundel County on Saturday, police said.

At 5:09 p.m. two bicyclists were injured on Central Avenue near the Patuxent River Bridge in Davidsonville, Anne Arundel police said.


The first bicyclist, a 62-year-old woman from Arlington, Va., was struck by a light-colored SUV that did not stop and continued toward Prince George's County. She was listed in critical but stable condition at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, police said.

A second bicyclist, a 52-year-old woman from University Park, was riding behind and also crashed. She was treated at Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie, police said.


Police said the SUV driver failed to yield to the bicyclists, who were riding on the edge of the road. Police are searching for a light-colored Honda CR-V driven by a white man with a gray mustache, approximately 50 to 60 years old.

The boy suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was treated at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, police said.

The driver of the car that struck the boy remained on the scene and will not be charged, police said. Police believe the crash was caused by bicyclist error.
