October 11, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 15-year-old girl was in critical condition at Washington Hospital Center yesterday, after police said she was struck by a red pickup truck in a hit-and-run accident in Annapolis.

Witnesses told police the truck driver was apparently trying to buy drugs in the 1900 block of Copeland St. about 1: 30 a.m. when residents told the man to leave and threw bottles and rocks at the truck, shattering the back window.

The man sped off and hit several parked cars before striking the teen-ager, Annapolis police said. The victim's identity was not released.

Police described the driver as a heavyset male with shoulder-length dark blond or light brown hair and a thick mustache. He was wearing a light-colored T-shirt.

Witnesses told police the pickup has an extended cab, a broken rear window, and shovels and rakes in the truck's bed. The front of the vehicle may be damaged and could have blue paint on it from a car it hit.

Anyone with information should call the Annapolis Police Department at 410-268-9000.
