ATLANTIC CITY – Police have identified a man killed in motor vehicle collision on the Black Horse Pike Sunday, Feb 10 as Marco Jesus Gutierrez, 31, of Tampa, Florida.
Police responded at 6:58 p.m. to the westbound lane of North Albany Avenue (Rt. 322) for the report of an accident involving a pedestrian. Gutierrez was walking in the left lane when he was struck by a Honda being driven by Juan Restrepo, 38, of Hyattsville, Maryland. Restrepo stopped his vehicle, which had sustained heavy damage.
