A 21-year-old Glen Burnie man who rode his bicycle through a red light into busy Crain Highway traffic Friday night was in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore on Saturday.

Anne Arundel County police said Robert James Scherer rode a bicycle through a red light and into Crain Highway at about 10 p.m. Friday. He entered the intersection with Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard, Route 648, and was hit by a northbound 2009 Toyota Camry driven by Ruth Henrietta Mims, 79, of Linthicum.

Police said Scherer rode into Mims' path, and she could not avoid the collision. She was not injured.
