An Edgewood man was in critical condition Thursday night after police said he was struck by an SUV while crossing a local road.
According to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, Myles Daye Murphy, 22, of the 800 block of West Spring Meadow Court in Edgewood was struck shortly after 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Hanson Road and Woodbridge Center Way in Edgewood.
Investigators determined that a 2002 Ford Explorer driven by Donnita Adams, 32, of Edgewood was traveling westbound on Hanson Road when Murphy ran from the Woodbridge Valley community toward the Harford Square community and entered the roadway. Police said Adams swerved to avoid Murphy but was unsuccessful.
Murphy was treated at the scene by the Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company and flown by Maryland State Police Medevac to the University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, where he was listed in critical condition.
Sheriff’s Office deputies attributed the accident to pedestrian error, and charges have not been filed against Adams.
