A 78-year-old man was flown to the regional trauma center early Wednesday afternoon after he was hit by a truck in an Edgewood parking lot.

J.B. Billings, of the 600 block of Wingleaf Court in Edgewood, was hit by a pickup truck around 12:15 p.m. in the parking lot of Edgewood Plaza in the 2200 block of Hanson Road, according to an accident report from the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

Billings was walking across the parking lot in a crosswalk when he was hit by a 1987 Dodge Ram pickup driven by Philipo Lloyd Allen Cobb, 49, of the 3100 block of Sounding Drive in Edgewood. Cobb told deputies he did not see Billings, who suffered a severe head laceration.

Billings was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was treated and released the same day.

Police listed failing to yield right of way as the cause of the crash.
