A 50-year-old man has died after he was struck by a vehicle on Liberty Road near Eldersburg on Monday night.
Maryland State Police say the man was crossing Md. 26 between Hemlock and Ridge roads at about 8:43 p.m. March 27, when he was struck by a 2013 Nissan Sentra being driven by a 17-year-old girl traveling east on Md. 26.
The pedestrian, an Eldersburg resident, was taken to Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, where he was pronounced dead. Police were withholding his identification on Tuesday, pending notification of next of kin.
The 17-year-old driver and her 17-year-old passenger, both of Eldersburg, were not identified.
Md. 26 was shut down for about two hours while police investigated the crash. Maryland State Police ask any witnesses to contact the investigating Troopers Ricker or Rafter by calling the Westminster Barrack at 410-386-3000.
