A 15-year-old Laurel resident died Thursday morning after he was struck by a car in Maryland City, authorities said.
Division Chief Keith Swindle, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, said the incident happened just before 6 a.m. near Route 198 and Russett Green East.
The teen was transported to Laurel Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and later died.
Anne Arundel County police identified the victim as Jaelin Ashe of nearby Carriage Walk Lane.
An investigation revealed that Ashe was struck by an eastbound 2010 Chevrolet Camaro while trying to cross the road Route 198, police said. The teen is believed to have crossed against a signal warning pedestrians to stop and wait.
The intersection was closed for several hours as authorities conducted an investigation, but it has since been reopened.
