OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police say a Virginia driver was issued a traffic citation after he struck a pedestrian walking in a marked crosswalk early Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened at around 1 p.m. at the intersection of Baltimore Avenue and 17th Street.

Investigators said the driver of the vehicle, 44-year-old Arun Chainani, of Arlington, Va., was driving westbound on 17th Street and was waiting to make a left turn onto southbound Baltimore Avenue. Police said that meantime, Chainani, who was yielding to a vehicle traveling eastbound in the intersection, attempted to make the left turn but failed to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian that was in the crosswalk.

The pedestrian was treated by Ocean City EMS and transported to Atlantic General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Chainani was cited by police for failing to exercise due care to avoid a pedestrian collision.
