BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police are searching for a suspect after a woman was hit by a car in north Baltimore Monday afternoon.

A woman was crossing Greenmount Ave. when a silver SUV hit her and kept going. A witness said they heard the impact before they realized how badly the victim had been hurt.

“I think it’s terrible. I think it’s awful that the person would do that and keep moving,” Donell Hester said.

After the moment of impact, the car sped away.

Chopper 13 captured an ambulance leaving the scene. Baltimore Police say the victim is in serious, but stable, condition.

“It’s very devastating. Just because she’s a person that’s in the streets, doesn’t mean she’s not cared about, because a lot of people were concerned about her,” a Baltimore resident told WJZ.

“I don’t know if she walked out there and he wasn’t aware she was getting ready to step out in the street, but at the same time, if you know you hit somebody, why would you keep moving?” Hester said. “That’s the awful part about it to me.”

People around the area knew the victim. One woman told WJZ she cleaned up the neighborhood in exchange for cash.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them immediately.

“Come forward, be honest, feel contrition and just deal with whatever consequences there is,” Hester said. “I mean if you had stopped, there might not have been any consequences.”
