OCEAN CITY, Md. — In a Sept. 30 story about a pedestrian struck by a police officer, The Associated Press erroneously reported the victim as Lindsay Richard, who is actually the spokeswoman for the Ocean City Police Department. The name of the victim, a 26-year-old man from Connecticut, was not released. The source of the story was incorrectly listed as the Wilmington News-Journal. The source was the Salisbury Daily Times.

A corrected version of the story is below:

A pedestrian was injured after he was struck by an Ocean City police officer.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the victim was a 26-year-old man from Connecticut, according to Lindsay Richard, spokeswoman for the Ocean City Police Department. The victim, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries after the accident at about 9 p.m. on Friday.

Police say the officer was not engaging in a pursuit at the time of the accident, and was driving a marked Chevrolet Tahoe.

The officer wasn’t identified, and the cause of the collision is still under investigation.


This story has been corrected to say that the victim was not named and that Lindsay Richard is the spokeswoman for the Ocean City police department, not the victim. The source of the story has been corrected to the Salisbury Daily Times, not the Wilmington News Journal.
