A 21-year-old man died Friday night after being struck by a car in Aberdeen, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office said.
Thomas Harris, of Aberdeen, was crossing South Philadelphia Boulevard when a Honda, traveling west, hit him, the sheriff’s office said. He was pronounced dead at the scene, they said.
After being summoned by the Aberdeen Police Department for a crash involving a pedestrian, county sheriff’s deputies responded around 11:16 p.m. to the 600 block of South Philadelphia Blvd., according to the sheriff’s office.
