On Saturday evening, a pedestrian was killed in a motor vehicle collision involving a Porsche on United States Route 301 (Crain Hwy) in Waldorf, Maryland. Troopers from Maryland State Police La Plata Barrack responded to the scene after receiving a report of the incident at around 8:36 pm.
According to a preliminary investigation conducted by Troopers from the MSP La Plata Barrack and the MSP CRASH Team, a 2015 Porsche Macan S operated by Mark Anthony Conner Sr. (58 yoa) of Waldorf, MD was traveling southbound on United States Route 301 near Acton Lane when it collided with a pedestrian who had entered the travel lanes of southbound United States Route 301.
The pedestrian, identified as Juan Alcides Urias-Hernandes (35 yoa) of Waldorf, Maryland, was not in a crosswalk or implied crosswalk at the time of the incident. Mr. Conner Sr. remained on the scene and called 911, but unfortunately, the pedestrian was pronounced dead on the scene.
