Pedestrian dies after hit-run incident on Greenspring Ave.

December 14, 2009

A 62-year-old Baltimore pedestrian was killed Saturday night after a car struck him and left the scene, according to city police. James Little Jr. of the 4800 block of Lanier Ave. was struck by a 1997 Jeep Cherokee driving northbound in the 4700 block of Greenspring Ave., said Agent Donny Moses, a Baltimore police spokesman. Little was taken to Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:45 p.m. The driver of the car hit Little after swerving to avoid hitting another vehicle, also driving northbound on Greenspring Avenue, Moses said, and continued heading up the street. Police later caught up with the Jeep, the windshield of which was smashed and stained with blood, in the 4700 block of Pimlico Road. The driver, a 20-year-old woman, was taken to the Central District station for questioning and a Breathalyzer test. She was later released. Police are waiting for the results of toxicology tests and are continuing the investigation.
