A pedestrian who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Lochearn on Tuesday night has been identified by Baltimore County police as Matthew Dennis Robinson, 29, of the 6000 block of Liberty Road, just over a mile away from where he was struck.
Police said the driver of a 2001 Mercedes E450 was traveling westbound on Liberty Road approaching Sedgemoor Road when the vehicle struck Robinson, who was in the center lane. The driver of the Mercedes, believed to be a man, continued on Liberty but lost control of the vehicle and struck a 2014 Honda Accord that was eastbound and crashed head-on into an MTA bus, police said.
The Mercedes driver left the vehicle and fled the scene, police said. The county police Crash Team is continuing to investigate the incident, and anyone with information is asked to call police at (410) 307-2020.
