A 51-year-old man was struck by a vehicle and killed Sunday while walking along a road in Maryland City.

Police and fire department officers say they received a call around 6:30 p.m. about a pedestrian struck at Route 198 near Whiskey Bottom Road.

They arrived to find a man who had been struck by one vehicle and possibly a second. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anne Arundel Co. Police Lt. Michael Brothers said the incident appeared to be "alcohol related" and a case of "pedestrian error." He said it was unclear whether the man stepped off the curb or fell onto the road before he was struck. Drivers of two different vehicles had stopped when officers arrived, indicating that he was hit by more than one vehicle, Brothers said. Officers were investigating, and no charges had been filed against the drivers as of late Sunday, he said.

Lt. Keith Hamilton, a spokesman for the county Fire Department, said the man who died was 51.
