OCEAN CITY, Md.- Authorities say a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in Ocean City while trying to cross Coastal Highway early Tuesday morning.
Ocean City police said the incident occurred at around 2:30 a.m., when the pedestrian, a 32-year-old North Las Vegas man, was attempting to cross Coastal Highway near 54th Street without a crosswalk. That is when an oncoming vehicle struck him, police said. Investigators said the driver had attempted to swerve to avoid the man.
According to officers at the scene, a witness performed CPR on the victim until Ocean City paramedics transported him to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury for treatment of serious injuries.
No charges have been filed against either the pedestrian or the driver but the investigation is ongoing.
Police are again reminding visitors to Ocean City to use marked crosswalks while crossing the street and to avoid crossing busy streets against traffic lights. Pedestrians are also encouraged to make eye contact with drivers and continue to watch for traffic while in the crosswalk.
