BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore County Police crash investigators continue to search for answers after a person came forward to report that they may have been involved in the hit-and-run crash that killed 20-year-old cyclist Aaron Michael Laciny on Charles Street in Towson Monday around 10:30 p.m.


Baltimore County Police released surveillance video near an Exxon Station where Laciny was left to die.

Police were called to the 300 block of Overbrook Road Wednesday morning after the person saw media coverage of the crash and recalled striking what they believed to be debris left in the roadway Monday night.

Crash investigators believe that their vehicle may be a participant in the crash sequence, and are continuing to try to identify all possible leads.

Police say they have a second car in custody. They are still unsure whether it was the first vehicle to hit Laciny and never look back.

“It’s unbelievable to leave someone on the ground dying,” said Nataliya Reznichmko, Laciny’s teacher.

A second video depicts vehicles traveling away from the crash site just after the crash occurred.

“The question now is, is this vehicle the first vehicle that hit the cyclist or is it another vehicle involved in the crash sequence?” said Jennifer Peach of Baltimore County Police.

Investigators said he was riding in the fast lane, an area with no bike path.

Police are urging the public to take a look at a second set of surveillance video, it shows cars passing by shortly after the crash.

“Not only could they be involved but anyone of those drivers could potentially be a witness,” Peach said.

“I loved him like a son,” Reznichmko said.

People like his teacher are praying for a break in the case.

Police are asking anyone with information on any driver or vehicle they believe may have been involved in this crash to contact police at 410-307-2020.
