BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Struck down in the street. A woman is killed in a hit-and-run.
As Mike Schuh reports, police are trying to find the suspect and any possible witnesses who saw it happen.
At Druid Hill and North Avenue, on a rainy day like Friday, perhaps it’s easier to understand how an accident might happen. But on Wednesday night, it was clear and dry.
“Today we’re asking the community to come forward and help us save this case,” said Detective Jeremy Silbert, Baltimore City Police Department.
The case involves a truck hitting a still unidentified pedestrian.
“An adult female was walking when she was struck by a vehicle. We believe that the vehicle is a dark blue pickup truck, most likely a Toyota in make,” said Silbert.
Police believe what happened at this intersection was so violent, that it had to have left a mark on the front of that Toyota pickup.
“We believe that it has damage to its front end. We would like you to either call 911 or contact detectives from our crash team,” Silbert said.
It happened at about 10:20 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1 — April Fools’ Day — a deadly meeting, far from a joke.
“You don’t even have to leave your name at this point. We’re just looking for some information about the suspect vehicle so we can locate the vehicle and the occupant or occupants of that vehicle,” said Silbert.
Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 410-396-2606.
