A North Carolina man remains in “serious condition” at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being struck by a driver on Maryland-140 East early Saturday morning, police said Monday.
Michael Scott Waggy, 39, of Sparta, North Carolina, was walking in the center of a lane on Baltimore Boulevard around 3:58 a.m. Saturday in diminished visibility because of rain conditions, Maryland State Police said.
The driver of a Hyundai, a man from Taneytown who has not been cited in the incident, was traveling east on Baltimore Boulevard near Gorsuch Road and was unable to avoid striking Waggy, who was “walking in the same direction and directly in the path of” the vehicle, police said.
The road was partially closed for about two hours.
Police continue to investigate the incident. Anyone with information or anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact Trooper First Class Mark Klinger at 410-386-3000, extension 3521.
