Official News Blog of Baltimore County police, fire, homeland security and emergency management. Call 911 to report crimes in progress and emergencies.
Date: Aug 6, 2018

UPDATE (August 6, 2018 2:07 p.m.):

suspect booking photoPolice have identified the man who struck a 3-year-old child on Right Wing Drive in Middle River last night as Michael William Houston Burns (46) of the unit block of Walkway Court in Middle River, 21220.

Burns was located and arrested around 9 p.m. in the 200 block of Glider Drive in Middle River, just a half mile from the scene of the hit-and-run crash, after an astute resident called 9-1-1 to report seeing the suspect vehicle depicted on the Baltimore County Facebook page shortly after the crash occurred.

Burns is charged with associated hit-and-run crash charges as well as driving on a suspended license. He is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on no bail status pending a bail review hearing.

Baltimore County Police would like to extend a special thanks to Ms. Stephanie, who called 9-1-1 after spotting the suspect vehicle!

UPDATE (August 5,  2018 8:20 p.m.):

Police have located this suspect vehicle and driver. Updated information on this case will be provided tomorrow.

Original Release (August 5, 2018 7:27 p.m.)

Image of suspect vehicle taken from residential security cameraBaltimore County Police are looking for this vehicle, a white 4-door Hyundai Elantra with a sunroof and luggage rack, with a partial Maryland registration plate of "3GA..." that was involved in a hit-and-run crash in Middle River around 6:10 p.m. this evening.

The Hyundai, driven by a white male approximately 30-something years of age, struck a 3-year-old girl when she ran out from between parked cars in the unit block of Right Wing Drive in Middle River, causing serious injuries to the child. She was transported to an area hospital with a suspected broken leg but is expected to survive.

Witnesses told police the driver initially stopped, stated that he did not see the little girl and didn't mean to hit her, then quickly fled the scene. Anyone who sees this vehicle is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.

 

This year marks the 35th year of communities getting together across the country, at military bases, United States territories, and Canadian cities.

On Tuesday, August 7, communities and cities will celebrate in their own unique way, whether it be community cook-outs, parades, parties or visits from law enforcement and emergency personnel. The goal is the same for everyone involved: To show criminals there is no place for them and their bullying tactics in our neighborhoods. County residents want to keep neighborhoods safe for their families, visitors and the businesses.

Turn on your porch light and say “No” to crime.
