Unidentified man struck, killed by car

December 29, 1993

County police were still trying yesterday to identify a man struck and killed by a car early Monday on Ritchie Highway in Arnold.

The 40- to 50-year-old man was walking south along Ritchie Highway near Joyce Lane about 3 a.m. when he was hit by a car driven by Alfred A. Winborne Jr., 20, which went up on the DTC shoulder of the road.

Police said the car glanced off a guardrail before hitting the man. Investigators said they do not know why the car left the road. The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.

Authorities said the victim was not carrying any identification, and police said they suspect he may have been homeless.

He was wearing a tan jacket over a brown leather jacket, all of which he was wearing over a blue hooded sweat shirt. He also had on dark blue work pants and an old pair of boots, which had holes in them. He weighed between 160 and 170 pounds and had a thick mustache. Police said he was carrying $39.78 in cash, some powdered soap and a cigarette lighter.

Police said Mr. Winborne has been charged with driving on a suspended license.
