Pedestrian killed in Anne Arundel

A woman crossing the street in Anne Arundel County was struck and killed by a sports utility vehicle about 45 minutes before sunrise on Wednesday, county police said.

Khardiatou Goloko, 49, was crossing at the intersection of Fort Smallwood and Kembo roads, walking a few steps behind a larger group that already had crossed safely, when she was hit by a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by George L. Durham, 54, of Arnold,
police said.

There is no marked crosswalk, stop sign or stoplight at the intersection, police said. Goloko, of Baltimore, was pronounced dead at the scene.
