Police Searching for Suspect Car Wanted in Fatal Weekend Hit-And-Run
GLEN BURNIE, Md. (CBSDC) - Maryland State Police continue to search for the driver who hit and killed a Laurel man early Saturday in an apparent hit and run incident.
Police released a description of a suspect vehicle they believe was involved in the death of 71-year-old Henry Smith, who was struck and killed while walking along I-295 near I-695 in Glen Burnie on Dec. 1.
The driver, who struck Smith and left the scene, was reportedly driving a light blue Toyota car, which had a left headlight out and the front bumper dragging on the ground. Immediately following the incident, the car was traveling north on I-295 with its flashers on and exited onto Waterview Ave., in the Westport are of Baltimore, according to police.
