OCEAN CITY — A Pennsylvania man struck by a vehicle on Baltimore Avenue early Saturday morning succumbed to injuries sustained in the collision on Wednesday.
Around 12:15 a.m. on Saturday, David Folger, 55, of Philadelphia, attempted to cross Baltimore Avenue at 22nd Street in a marked crosswalk from west to east when he was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle, a Lincoln Navigator, was operated by Nathaniel Cuff, 18, of Delmar, Del., who was traveling southbound on Baltimore Avenue.
