Just before 4 p.m. on December 10, 2018, a Baltimore County Police patrol officer observed a 2014 black Honda Accord which had been reported stolen in Baltimore County on December 7, 2018. The officer and stolen vehicle were in the area of Highfalcon Road and Meriam Court, 21117.

The officer stopped the Honda and started to get out of his police car to approach the suspects. As the officer exited his car, the driver inside the stolen car accelerated and fled the area. The officer pursued the stolen car but ended the pursuit within a short period of time, while on Highfalcon Road. The driver of the stolen car continued to flee the area after police ended the pursuit. At Highfalcon and Candytuft Road, the stolen Honda struck an unoccupied 2004 Ford truck and continued into a tree in the 300-block of Highfalcon Road.

One of the occupants inside the stolen vehicle, Taiwan X. Linton, 18, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The juvenile driver and two other juvenile occupants inside the stolen Honda were injured and transported to local hospitals for treatment.

Police are continuing their investigation into the motor vehicle theft and subsequent crash. No further information at this time.

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's help locating the suspect vehicle that hit and killed a 20-year-old pedestrian on North Charles Street in Towson last night.

Police are looking for a 2007-2019 Toyota Tundra or Toyota Sequoia truck with a driver side mirror that has the mirror glass broken out and the mirror cover missing. There could also be damage to the front of the vehicle on the driver side.

The pedestrian was crossing North Charles Street south of Ruxton Ridge Road around 10:30 p.m. when the suspect vehicle, a Toyota Tundra or Sequoia, traveling northbound on North Charles Street, stuck him on the driver side of the vehicle and continued to flee the scene northbound on North Charles Street. After the pedestrian was knocked to the ground he was struck by a second passing vehicle, a Mercedes, that stopped at the scene and called 911. 

The pedestrian, identified as Mzimazisi Ncube (20) of the 300 block of Burke Avenue, 21286, was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Police are asking anyone who sees a Toyota Tundra or a Toyota Sequoia of any color that is missing the cover and glass on the driver side exterior mirror today to contact police by calling 410-307-2020 or dial 9-1-1. The Baltimore County Crash Investigation Team is continuing to investigate this incident this morning.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Team is investigating a fatal crash that happened earlier this morning when a single vehicle struck a tree on Joppa Road near Silver Spring Road.
