A 911 address mix-up may possibly be to blame for the death of six-year-old Ian Uro. Uro was pronounced dead on arrival at 9:45 a.m. when he was taken to the emergency room of the Beth Israel Medical Center.

A Severna Park man was killed Saturday night when he was struck by two vehicles.

The 50-year victim, James Howard Mannix, was struck at 9:21 p.m. while trying to cross the southbound portion of Ritchie Highway just north of Robinson Road.

The victim was struck first by a 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager traveling south. The impact of the collision threw the man into the middle of the road.

While there, he was then struck by a 2002 Ford F-150 pick up truck, said Anne Arundel police spokesman Michael Brothers.

Both drivers stopped and called rescue crews, which then came to help the man. He was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Police have not filed charges in this case, and said Minnix appears to be at fault because he did not use a crosswalk very near where he was struck. The victim may have been drinking alcohol, authorities added.

The drivers of the striking vehicles were not injured.
