A pedestrian attempting to cross Snowden River Parkway in Columbia is in critical condition after being struck by a car early Saturday morning, Howard County police said.

Jacob Carl Lanswerk, 27, of Michigan, was trying to cross the road in the area of Snowden Square Drive just before 5 a.m. at a "non-pedestrian crossing location" when he was struck by a 2004 Toyota Camry heading northeast, according to police.

Lanswerk was transported by helicopter to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, according to a police spokesman.

The driver of the Toyota, Haley Celeste McKinney, 20, of Ellicott City, was uninjured, police said.

The northeast portion of Snowden River Parkway near the accident scene was closed until 6 a.m. as part of the investigation, a spokesman said.
