Po­lice say a New­burg man was struck and killed by a ve­hi­cle in La Plata on Sun­day evening.

Lawrence Wil­liam Ve- lozo, 37, had re­port­edly been ei­ther sit­ting or ly­ing in the road­way of U.S. 301 when he was hit by a sports util­ity vehi- cle, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease. He was taken to a nearby hospi­tal where he died from his in­juries.

Around 8 p.m. on Dec. 4, deputies of the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to U.S. 301 near Shin­ing Wil­low Way
