OCEAN CITY, Md. - Ocean City Police are investigating the second deadly pedestrian crash in less than two weeks.
A 15-year-old girl from Allegany County was hit and killed late Tuesday afternoon as she and a group of friends tried to cross Coastal Highway at 21 st street to catch a bus. Police say the group of friends did not use the crosswalk and were crossing against the no walk signal. The victim was hit around 5:45pm by a car driving south in lane three of Coastal Highway.
The pedestrian was treated at the scene by paramedics and taken to Atlantic General Hospital with life threatening injuries. She was later transferred to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where she died of her injuries. Her body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for autopsy.
The driver was identified as a seventeen-year-old boy from Worcester County. He was released at the scene without charge.
The Ocean City Police are continuing to investigate this incident and are awaiting the results of the autopsy.
Matthew Cheswick, 22, died on May 28 as he was crossing Coastal Highway with a group of friends. Diogo Facchini, 30, was arrested and charged with homicide by a motor vehicle while intoxicated, leaving the scene of a fatal collision, driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired by alcohol and a number of other traffic related charges.
