Hit-and-run driver kills city woman as she crosses street

March 06, 1994

A 35-year-old woman carrying her wash across West North Avenue in Baltimore was struck fatally by a hit-and-run driver yesterday afternoon, and police last night were asking for help in finding a suspect.

Marshall Still, of the 2700 block of W. North Ave., was pronounced dead at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center at 3:13 p.m., about 15 minutes after being hit near her home.

Officer Joseph B. Johnson, of the traffic investigation unit, said Ms. Still had come from Brite Laundry and was crossing West North Avenue near Dukeland Street when an eastbound car hit her. The car slowed only briefly after impact.

Police said that Ms. Still bounced off the car's windshield and landed in the street, breaking three bones and suffering severe head injuries.

The only description police had last night was of a light blue car, either a Pontiac Grand Am or a Buick Skylark, with a damaged front end and a broken windshield. The license plate number was thought to be either Maryland AZS-224 or ASZ-224.

Anyone with information about the accident is urged to call Officer Johnson at 396-2606.
