A 13-year-old Woodlawn High School student was struck by a passenger vehicle near the school Monday morning and transported by Medevac to Maryland Shock Trauma Center with life-threatening injuries, according to the Baltimore County police department.

Trayvon Shallomar Gore-Cromer, of the 1800 block of Alto Vista Avenue, was in serious condition Monday afternoon, said a Shock Trauma spokeswoman.

Officers first responded to a call at 7:15 a.m. Monday about a male struck by a vehicle on Dogwood Road near the school, said Louise Rogers-Feher, a police spokeswoman.

A preliminary investigation showed Gore-Cromer ran out into Dogwood Road in front of the 2010 Ford Focus, which was traveling west.

"He struck the windshield of the vehicle and fell into the eastbound lane," Rogers-Feher said.

The driver of the Focus remained at the scene, Rogers-Feher said.
