LOCHEARN, Md. (WJZ) — Baltimore County police are still searching for the driver in a deadly hit-and-run early Saturday morning that took the life of Garohn Green.
Green has a big, close-knit family, and in the wake of this crash, they are holding each other up, hoping someone comes forward.
Goofy, but caring and affectionate. That’s how grieving family members remember Green
“He was just that loving nephew,” one family member said.
The 27-year-old was hit by a car in Baltimore County Saturday morning and left to die.
“Right now, we want to locate this car the driver, and see who’s actually responsible for this collision,” said Baltimore County PD Cpl. Shawn Vinson.
Police say Green was trying to cross Liberty Rd. near Croyden Rd. at 3:30 in the morning, when he was hit and killed by a car that never stopped.
“We do not understand how a human being can hit someone and just leave,” said Sheronne Williams, Green’s aunt.
His heartbroken aunts tell WJZ they remember Green’s dancing at a family celebration earlier this year. He was funny, outgoing, and the life of the party.
“We just, you know, keep watching the videos of him living life and being happy,” Williams added.
They, like police, are desperate to find the car involved: A two-toned, late 90s Lexus ES300 with heavy front damage.
“He has a whole heap of people that loves and cares about him,” Lauretta Dickerson, Green’s aunt, added. “And we’re not going to give up. So don’t think, whoever you are, we’re never going to give up.”
A devastated family, searching for closure and justice after unthinkable tragedy.
Green’s family is now planning his funeral, and asking the family of the driver who fled the scene to come forward.
“They know exactly who it is. They know it’s one of their family members, and i know they wouldn’t want it to be them, in our position. Someone needs to tell. And someone needs to come forth,” said Dickerson
