Pasadena boy, 8, dies after being struck by an SUV

An 8-year-old Pasadena boy, who rode his bike up to his aunt's stopped sport utility vehicle to talk to his cousin inside, died after being struck by the SUV, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

Edgar Hernandez-Guzman suffered internal injuries when he was run over about 3:40 p.m. Monday by the Lincoln Navigator driven by Rosalba Ortiz De Guzman, also of Pasadena, police said.

De Guzman was stopped near Summit Avenue and Chain Hills Road when Edgar approached along the driver's side. He stopped next to the SUV to talk to one of De Guzman's three children in the back of the vehicle when she pulled into the road and ran over her nephew, who had gotten in front of the Navigator unseen, police said.

Edgar was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center, where he died an hour later.

Officer Sara Schriver said De Guzman had looked to her left for cars as she got back onto the road but didn't see Edgar because the SUV is so high.

Nationally, more than 50 children have been killed in similar accidents this year, according to Kids and Cars, a nonprofit group.
