1 teenager killed, another hurt in Anne Arundel County crash

WASHINGTON — A teenager was killed and another one is hurt following a crash in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

It happened at around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday on eastbound Maryland Route 100 and Oakwood Road in Glen Burnie.

Police said that the teenagers were trying to cross Route 100 on foot, when they were struck by a vehicle.

A 17-year-old, identified as Stephen Carlisle, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 15-year-old girl was taken to the hospital and has injuries that are not life-threatening, police said. Both teenagers are from Glen Burnie.

Investigators in Anne Arundel County say the preliminary cause of the deadly crash appears to be pedestrians unlawfully trying to dart across a controlled-access highway. The 30-year-old driver remained at the crash site, and police said that the driver showed no signs of excessive speed or impairment.
