TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) — The family of a college professor killed in a hit-and-run near Towson Town Center on New Year’s Eve is offering a $20,000 reward for information in the case.

Police said Tom Gluick, 62, was walking in a crosswalk at the intersection of Dulaney Valley Road and Fairmount Avenue around 7:20 p.m. on December 31 when he was hit by a truck. The driver then fled the scene.

Gluick died over the weekend. The assistant professor of chemistry at Georgia Gwinnett College was reportedly in the area to visit his former wife Sheila Garrity.


On a GoFundMe page for Gluick, Garrity wrote he likely died due to a blood clot in a lung.

She said the family is mourning but will soon begin planning his funeral.
