Maryland State Police continued searching yesterday for Gregory Augustus James Jr., a Baltimore man they believe fled the scene of a two-car accident Tuesday morning on Interstate 95 in Howard County using the Ford pickup truck of a driver who had stopped to help. Police identified James, 32, by listening to messages on a cell phone found in the smashed Isuzu Trooper involved in the accident, which sent two Silver Spring residents to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and slowed the morning commute.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court, setting the stage for a review of police patrols in high-crime urban areas, agreed yesterday to rule on the officers' power to stop and question someone just because that person has fled when the police arrive.The court has been interested in that issue for a decade and twice before had agreed to settle it. But both earlier cases ended without a ruling on how police may react to someone's decision to run away at the sight of officers.Federal and state courts have been widely divided over the question -- a factor that appeared to have persuaded the justices to try again.
