Police continue search for vehicle in fatal hit-and-run accident in Towson

Baltimore County police are still investigating the early-morning hit-and-run on Saturday, March 31, that killed Ryan Bailey, a 20-year-old Towson University student.

Police spokeswoman Cathy Batton said Monday that police are looking for anyone who may have witnessed the crash or interacted with Bailey early Saturday morning before the incident.

County police and fire units responded to the area of York Road and Washington Avenue at 1:51 a.m. on Saturday, March 31, to find Bailey, a native of Seaford, N.Y., severely injured and in cardiac arrest, police said.

The police department's initial investigation indicates that Bailey had been walking northbound on York Road when a vehicle, described as a "silver or white boxy-style car" traveling northbound on York Road struck Bailey and pushed him toward the sidewalk.

Police said Bailey hit a grass embankment and a tree root before coming to rest on the sidewalk on the east side of York Road.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information about the accident or the events leading up to it may call the Baltimore County Police Department at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587).

People can also respond by texting a message to Metro Crime Stoppers — "CRIMES" (274637) — then enter the message starting with "MCS," or e-mail a tip at http://www.metrocrimestoppers.org.

Meanwhile, Towson University officials announced that they would host a candlelight vigil Tuesday, April 3 at 8 p.m. in memory of Bailey — and also Timothy Coyer, a student and former  U.S. Army soldiers who was found dead in his apartment on Saturday. The vigil will take place at Speaker's Circle on campus, between Cook Library and Hawkins Hall.
