County police were searching yesterday for the driver of a car that ran over a pedestrian in Pasadena on Wednesday night and fled the scene of the fatal accident with her passenger, a young boy. Witnesses told police that the boy got out of the car to ask bystanders if the car had hit the victim. After he was told that it had, the woman yelled at the child to get back into the vehicle and drove away, police said. The car was the second of two vehicles that hit 43-year-old Yvette Morton around 9:30 p.m. as she attempted to cross Mountain Road at Magothy Beach Road near Lake Shore Plaza - an accident that police blamed on pedestrian error.

WE'VE ALL gone by accident scenes. Crunched cars, scarred trees, glass and other debris littering the road. Unfortunately, some of us live near sites where accidents frequently happen. Jill Balthis is one such person. "Who is responsible for cleaning up after accidents?" she asked. According to JoAnn Maxfield, customer service representative for the Howard County Department of Public Works, the Police Department has arrangements with towing companies. After the tow truck loads up the damaged vehicle, the driver will sweep debris or glass to the side of the road and remove any large car parts.

Two beams on the southbound Interstate 95 bridge spanning the Baltimore Beltway will need to be replaced following Monday afternoon's crash involving an oversized piece of construction equipment. Engineers conducted structural tests overnight and determined that two of three beams over the shoulder of the interstate were damaged by the arm of an excavator being hauled from a nearby construction site, David Buck, spokesman for the State Highway Administration, said Tuesday. "The exterior beam is going to be replaced, probably next spring, there's no doubt about it," Buck said.
