A Glen Burnie man who was struck in a hit-and-run accident Tuesday has died, Anne Arundel County police said, the second pedestrian death in the county in a day.
John Junior Stewart, 52, was walking on eastbound Mountain Road near Jumpers Hole Road in Glen Burnie when witnesses said a dark-colored van or SUV struck him shortly after 7 p.m., police said. The vehicle slowed to a stop just beyond the crash but then continued eastbound on Mountain Road without helping the victim, police said.
Stewart was transported to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died.
Crash investigators suspect that pedestrian error caused the accident, and that speed was not a factor. Stewart was not in a crosswalk and failed to yield to oncoming traffic, police said.
