Teen driver questioned in hit-and-run accident

April 15, 1994

Police were deciding yesterday whether to charge a 16-year-old in connection with a hit-and-run accident that left a man injured Wednesday afternoon.

Police said a 1984 Chevrolet Cavalier struck 29-year-old John E. Taylor of Pasadena as he stood in the middle of Bay Road trying to flag down the car. Mr. Taylor suffered lower back and leg injuries in the accident, which occurred about 3 p.m. near the intersection with Lake Riviera Road.

Police said that as the car was turning onto Bay Road, Mr. Taylor walked into the middle of the street to get the car to stop.

Police spokesman Randy Bell said Mr. Taylor thought the car was being driven recklessly "and wanted to flag it down." The driver kept going after he hit Mr. Taylor, police said.

Mr. Taylor remembered the car's license plate number and gave it to police, who later questioned the youth.

Mr. Taylor was listed in fair condition yesterday at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
