A 21-year-old disabled man was struck by a car around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday on Cross Campus Drive.

The victim, whose name was not released by Baltimore County Police, was about three-fourths of the way through the crosswalk in his motorized scooter when a 2011 Toyota Civic traveling westbound hit him.

The victim was thrown about 120 feet and subsequently transported to Sinai Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver was identified by BCPD as 21-year-old student Jherika Curry.

Curry’s roommate, junior Christine Williams, was a passenger in the car.

Williams said that her roommate could not brake quickly enough and the car hit the victim.

“All I know is he went flying and said ‘ow, my leg,’” Williams said.

Curry has been charged with failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk contributing to an accident, and failure to exercise due care to avoid pedestrian collision.

BCPD could not confirm whether the victim was a student.

    FYI, the person mentioned a piano performance major at Towson is recovering and will be okay for anyone who is wondering.

    “seriously?” — What of it? Brake (as the website you linked points out) can be used as a verb to mean to slow down.
