A 14-year-old Bel Air boy was struck and killed while he attempted to cross Route 24 Friday night, state police said.

Joseph Paul D'Entremont of Bel Air was crossing the Route 24 intersection where Red Pump Road and Bynum Road meet at about 9:45 p.m. As he crossed, police said he was struck by Robin Monaco, 19, of White Hall, who was driving a 2005 Subaru.

Police said D'Entremont used the crosswalk, but that Monaco had a green light.

D'Entremont was taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Monaco was not injured. Police said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

The intersection was shut down for about two hours Friday night, police said. The accident remains under investigation. 

By Saturday, a memorial of flowers, balloons and handmade signs were set up at the corner of Rock Spring and Bynum roads where the accident happened.
