SEARCH UNDERWAY FOR DRIVER IN FATAL HIT/RUN IN HARFORD CO.
(FALLSTON, MD) – Maryland State Police are searching for a driver and vehicle that struck and killed a Harford County man tonight as he walked behind a snow blower near his home.
The victim is identified as Christian J. Widomsky, 44, of the 2800-block of Harford Road, Fallston, Md. He was transported from the scene by emergency services personnel to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Police do not have a good physical description of the suspect driver. The vehicle that struck the victim is described by witnesses as a dark colored Jeep Cherokee, with dark flared fenders and a silver push bumper. The vehicle has a lift kit, which means it sets higher off the road than regular Jeep Cherokees.
At about 7:00 p.m. today, Maryland State Police at the Bel Air Barrack were dispatched to the 2800-block of Harford Road for the report of a hit and run crash. Investigating troopers learned the victim had borrowed his neighbor’s snow blower. He was walking along the shoulder of Harford Road back to his house behind the snow blower.
Witnesses said the Jeep Cherokee was northbound on Harford Road approaching the victim from behind. Troopers were told the driver of the Jeep appeared to lose control and the vehicle struck the victim from behind. After striking the victim, the Jeep Cherokee did not stop and continued north on Harford Road toward Rt. 152.
Anyone with information about the driver or vehicle involved in this fatal crash is urged to contact Maryland State Police at the Bel Air Barrack immediately, at 410-879-2101. Callers may remain anonymous.
