Baltimore County police are investigating a hit-and-run incident on Hammershire Road in Reisterstown that killed a pedestrian Thursday afternoon.
Williard Eugene Scram, 67, was discovered by police lying in the roadway at 3:41 p.m., after phone calls reported hearing someone yelling in the street and seeing a man lying on the ground at Hammershire and Reisterstown roads, police said.
Police determined that Scram, a Reisterstown resident, was lying next to a curb in the southbound lane when he was hit by a vehicle that continued driving southbound on Hammershire Road and turned westbound onto Reisterstown Road, police said.
Scram was transported to Sinai Hospital, where he later died.
