An Aberdeen man died Sunday from injuries received when he was struck by a vehicle on Rt. 22 near Middleton Lane, police said Monday.
Phillip P. Gaskill, 20, of the 400 block of Law Street in Aberdeen died Sunday at University of Maryland R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, Aberdeen police said in a statement Monday afternoon.
Police responded to westbound Rt. 22 near Middleton Lane Saturday at about 8:30 p.m. to investigate reports of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Arriving officers found Gaskill 20, suffering from serious head injuries.
Police said a 2004 Volvo driven by Oxana Keck of Aberdeen Proving Ground stuck Gaskill just west of the Middleton Road intersection. Gaskill was treated by paramedics from the Aberdeen Fire Department and transported to Shock Trauma, where he was listed in “very critical condition” earlier Sunday. Keck was not injured.
The cause of the incident is still under investigation. Members of the Harford County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Unit are assisting the Aberdeen Police in the investigation.
