A collision near the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Dawson Avenue in Wheaton left one person with life-threatening injuries last night. According to Montgomery County Police, a male pedestrian was crossing southbound Georgia - and was not in a marked crosswalk - heading west shortly before 7:30 PM last night. He was struck by a southbound Chevrolet Suburban.

Officers responded to the scene around 7:28 PM, and the pedestrian was transported to a local hospital.

Police say the pedestrian who was struck may have been under the influence of alcohol. They are investigating that, and are not releasing his name until his family can be notified. The driver of the Suburban was not injured.
