A 22-year-old Elkton man, a volunteer firefighter, died after being struck by a car in Ocean City Monday night.
The incident occurred in the area of 46th Street and Coastal Highway at about 9:40 p.m., as a 44-year-old Berlin man was driving north on Coastal Highway, according to police. The victim, 22-year-old Noah Day, was “in the roadway and not in a marked crosswalk” when he was struck, police said.
According to social media posts from various Maryland fire companies, Day was a volunteer firefighter for the North East Fire Company. The annual Maryland State Firemen’s Convention is taking place in Ocean City June 18 – 23.
