On September 4, 2021, at approximately 9:12 pm, Anne Arundel County Police officers responded to the 100 block of Governor Ritchie Highway N/B at Magothy Bridge Road for a hit and run crash involving two pedestrians.

The adult male pedestrian, a 52-year old male from the 8500 block of Pulaski Highway in Baltimore,  suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Anne Arundel County Fire Department paramedics, and was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy. The juvenile male pedestrian, the 11-year old son of the same address, was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis by the Anne Arundel County Fire Department for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
