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.
