St. Mary's sheriff's deputies reported this week that they have been contacted by the driver of a pickup truck involved in a collision on Sunday in Great Mills that left a pedestrian in critical-but-stable condition.

A Maryland State Police helicopter crew flew James Benjamin Clarke Jr., the injured 65-year-old Great Mills resident, to the University of Maryland Hospital's shock-trauma center in Baltimore, sheriff's deputies report, after the incident that occurred shortly before 9:30 a.m. Sunday on Harrison Street, in a housing area where Clarke lives off Chancellor's Run Road.

Deputies gathering evidence at the scene posted a request for the public's assistance in locating the vehicle that struck the pedestrian. On Monday, sheriff's deputies report, a 21-year-old Lexington Park man driving a 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck involved in the collision went to the sheriff's office.

Sheriff's deputy Cindy Allen said no charges have been filed in the matter, and that the name of the driver would not be released at present because of the ongoing nature of the deputies' investigation, assisted by the state's attorney's office.
